初中英语知识,初中英语,though和although

  例句:She promised to phone. I heard nothing, though.

  她答应要打电话来. 可我没听到回信儿。

  PS:这样用的though通常位于句末,但有时位于句首的though也有这样的意思。

  例句:He says he’ll pay, I don’t think he will, though.

  他说他要付钱,然而我认为他不会付的。

  2. 在 as though(好像,仿佛),even though(即使,纵然)等固定短语中,不能用 although代替though。

  例句:She treats me as though I were a stranger.

  她待我仿佛我是一个陌生人。

  PS:两者均可用于省略句,通常见于主句与从句主语相同,且从句谓语含有动词be的情形。

  例句:Although [Though] (he is) still young he is going very grey.

  尽管他还年轻他的头发却已变得灰白。

  3. 当though用于倒装形式,它不能换成although,但可换成as。

  例句:Successful though [as] he is, he is not proud.

  他虽然成功,但不骄傲。

  PS:若倒装后置于句首的是名词时,其前习惯上不用冠词或其他限定词。

  例句:Big puzzle though [as] it was, it hadn’t got the better of Jim.

  虽然是个大难题,但仍没有难倒吉姆。

  4. 不要按汉语“虽然……但是……”的表达习惯,在 although 后连用 but。

  例句:误:Although he’s only an amateur, but he’s a first-class player.

  正:Although he’s only an amateur, he’s a first-class player.

  虽然他只是个业余爱好者,但却是一流的高手。

  5. 在强调时,although 可与 yet, still 等副词连用。

  例句:Though he seems happy, yet he is worried.

  虽然他看起来很幸福,但他实际上很烦恼。

  6. 在某些特定的语境中,although 与 but 连用的句子是可能的(注:but 引出的句子在 although 从句之前)。

  例句:He wanted to go abroad, but although he had some money he couldn’t afford it.

  他想出国,尽管他有些钱,但还是负担不起。

  7. 两词同义并可换用,但although语气较重,通常放在句首并用于正式场合。

  例句:Although it was snowing, it was not very cold.

  虽然下着雪,但并不很冷。

  8. although 引导从句常指事实,而though 引导的句子可表假设。

  例句:Let's start as arranged though it rains tomorrow.

  即使明天下雨,咱们也按预定的计划出发吧。(假设)

  He was not unhappy although he had to live alone.

  虽然得一个人生活,他毫无不快之感。(事实)

  9. although 只用作连词,而though 除作连词外,还可用作副词,常置句末,句子较长时,也置于句中。

  例句:It's hard work, I enjoy it though.

  这是苦差事,可我干得颇有乐趣。
