although的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. 参见:though
  2. 区别although和though:though可以做副词,指“但是”,但是although不行。as though属固定搭配,though不能替换成althoughalthough要比though来得更正式,相对而言,语气比较重,但是though的使用更普遍。although引导的从句,常指实际发生的事情,而不是假象,设想。though和although都可在从句中用作连词,通常表示相同的意思,但though更普遍适应于非正式的表述中。

    He said he would come, he didn't, though.
    句中的though不能替换成although。

    He would not be unhappy though he should have to live alone.
    就算要一个人住,他可能也不会不开心。

    He was not unhappy although he had to live alone.
    虽然他不得不要一个人住,却没有不开心。

conj.(连词)
  1. although的基本意思是“尽管,虽然”或“然而,但是”,常用于引导陈述语气的让步状语从句,且引导的句子常指事实,而不指设想。
  2. although可置于句首(此时多用逗号与主句分开),也可置于句末(此时用不用逗号均可),也可用于句中表强调。
  3. 在although引导的复合句中,若主句和从句的主语相同,且从句的谓语动词含动词be,则从句的主语和动词be可以省略。
  4. although不能与but在句中同时出现,即有了although就不可以再用but。但although可与副词yet连用而产生关联关系,在含让步状语从句的主句中还可以使用nevertheless, still等副词。
  5. although not是口语中的习惯说法, although not前后呼应的词须是同类词。例如:With all her faults,I love her and I usually agree with her, too, although not always.尽管她有各种各样的缺点,我仍然爱她,我也通常与她观点一致,虽然不总是这样。
  6. 在一定上下文中although也可与but连用,不过此时but须置于although之前,意为“但尽管…”。例如:But I didn't know that then, although I learned it later.但我当时的确不知道此事,尽管后来还是知道了。

词义辨析

conj.(连词)
although, though
这两个词都可表示“虽然”。其区别是:
1.although的语气较重,引导的句子常指事实; though引导的句子可表示假设。
2.though可以引起从句的主语和谓语部分倒装,而although不可。
3.although只用作连词; 而though除用作连词外,还可用作副词。另外,though可用作并列连词,也可用作从属连词;而although只能用作从属连词。
4.though可用于even though, as though, what though等结构; 而although不能。
though although as even though
这些连词均可表示“虽然,尽管”之意。
  • though:though和although在意义上几乎毫无区别,但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。
  • although:although与though在意义上相似,但文体上是比较正式用词,语气比though强。
  • as: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。
  • even though:even though(=even if),意为“即使”,引导让步状语从句。though也引导让步状语从句,意为“虽然”;even though有退一步设想的意味,与though不同。though引导的句子所说的是事实,even though引导的句子所说的则不一定是事实。例如:
  • 即使他知道这个秘密,他也不肯说出来。
  • He will not tell the secret even though(even if)he knows it.
  • 他虽然知道这个秘密,但他不会说出来。
  • He will not tell the secret though he knows it.

常见错误

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:although it was warm and sunny, we continued to bat.

    纠正:although it was raining heavily, we continued to bat.

    翻译:尽管下着大雨,我们还是继续打球。

    分析:although这个词,指“虽然,尽管”,要表达出真正的比较。错句中,天气很好,和继续打球没有对立面,只有天气不好和继续打球才成对比。

  • 错句:although a very young man, his health was bad.

    纠正:very young man , he had bad health.

    翻译:尽管他是个年轻人,身体却很差。

    分析:“他的健康”和“年轻人”不一致。
