Here is a chance for you to have your questions answered by Doctor English. Today’s question is:

What is the difference between using "though" and "although" in a sentence?

Good question. Typically speaking, “though” and “although” are both used as conjunctions and therefore can be interchanged. However, “although” is more commonly used at the beginning of a sentence, whereas “though” is used in other places in the sentence. Some people use “although” in more formal speech or writing, while “though” is a more common term and often used to link words or phrases.

Thank you for sending your questions. If you have any further queries, please email Doctor English at drenglish@vec.ca
