Though (Adverb)

Pengertian dan Penggunaan Though (Adverb)

Though sebagai adverb (kata keterangan) maknanya mirip dengan “however”, “despite this”, atau “nevertheless” (namun; meskipun demikian).

Adverb ini digunakan ketika ingin menyatakan contrast (pertentangan) dengan pernyataan sebelumnya. Though yang ditempatkan di tengah atau akhir sebuah kalimat membuat pernyataan sebelumnya menjadi less important (kurang penting). Pada situasi informal kata ini kadang ditulis menjadi tho.

Selain sebagai adverb, though dapat pula digunakan sebagai conjunction (kata hubung.)
