辨析记忆
though / although / as
这些连词均可表示“虽然,尽管”之意。
though和although在意义上几乎毫无区别,但文体上后者是较正式用词,语气比though强。此外,在习惯用法上这两个词仍有以下一些差异:1.though可引出倒装语序的让步状语从句,although 则不能。2.though可与even连用,although则不能;在as though结构中,只用though,不能用although。3.though可以置于从句末,而although则不能。4.引出省略句时,通常用though。
as → 引出让步状语从句只用于倒装语序结构中,语气强于上述两个连词。
