「although」正確用法是?跟 though 一樣嗎?

You are currently viewing 「although」正確用法是?跟 though 一樣嗎?

Hello, everyone! 我是英文庫的 Celine 🙂,今天要來看看 although 的用法~

當你想用英文來表達「雖然」的時候,第一個會想到的字是什麼呢?相信很多人跟我一樣會想到 although 對吧,不過呢,想的到是一回事,能用的對才是真本事!所以今天就一起來看看要怎麼把 although 用對用好吧!Let’s go!

although 的用法及例句

although 用來表示「雖然、即使」,是連接詞,在句子中是扮演轉折的角色,以表達句意上的對比,通常會放在句首,看看例句你就懂了:

Although I’m full, I still want to eat.
雖然我很飽,但我還是想吃東西。

Although she was sick, she still went to work.
雖然她生病了,但她還是去上班。

Although this laptop is old, it still runs well.
雖然這台筆電舊了,它還是運作地很順暢。

Although this dress looks really good on me, I still won’t buy it.
雖然我穿這件洋裝真的很好看,但我還是不會買它。

Although none of this matters, it feels very important.
雖然這些都沒什麼要緊,但還是感覺非常重要。

仔細看例句後,你應該可以發現在後半部的子句常常會搭配 still 一起使用,這樣可以用來加強語氣唷~

另外,although 除了可以放在句首,還可以放在句中,但前面通常就不會加逗號了,以下示範三個例句給你看:

Although I’m full, I still want to eat.
= I still want to eat although I’m full.

Although she was sick, she still went to work.
= She still went to work although she was sick.

Although this laptop is old, it still runs well.
= This laptop still runs well although it is old.

補充#1: although 和 though 用法一樣嗎?

在學 although 的用法時,總少不了 though 的相伴,那這兩個長得那麼像的字用法是否相同呢?🤔

其實兩者在用法上是差不多的,although 和 though 都可以放在句首與句中(皆作為連接詞),不同之處在於只有 though 可以放在句尾(這時候會作為副詞),且是很口語的表達方式。在語氣上呢,although 則會比 though 來得正式一點,though 用在口語會比書面來得多。

解釋完哩,來看看例句示範吧,以下的句子都是正確且意思差不多的:

Although Randy has a lot of friends, he still feels very lonely.

Though Randy has a lot of friends, he still feels very lonely.

Randy has a lot of friends. He still feels very lonely, though.
➡ though 放句尾時,前面會加上逗號,在口語上就是代表著停頓點~

Randy still feels very lonely although he has a lot of friends.

Randy still feels very lonely though he has a lot of friends.

補充#2: although 的常見錯誤

我們在中文講「雖然…」時,後面總少不了會接「但是…」,不過呢,如果你把這個習慣帶進英文的句子,可是會變成錯誤的句子唷 🙅‍♀️,像是這樣:

Although Randy has a lot of friends, but he still feels very lonely. ❌

為什麼是錯的呢?🤔 因為在英文邏輯中,although 已經有轉折的語氣在了,所以不需要 although + but 來轉折兩次,而在文法上,although 和 but 都是連接詞,兩個子句只需要一個連接詞就好囉,因此正確的寫法會是這樣:

Although Randy has a lot of friends, he still feels very lonely. ⭕️

Randy has a lot of friends, but he still feels very lonely. ⭕️

That’s All for Today

以上就是 although 的介紹,相信對你來說很容易學習。那不管是在英文口說還是寫作,although 都是非常實用的,所以將 although 的用法學好絕對是必要並且有利沒有弊啦!那也要記得別再把 although 和 but 放在同一句話囉!
