also tho'  (thō)
conj. & adv. Informal



1. notwithstanding that; although: Though we tried hard, we lost the game.
2. even if; granting that (often prec. by even).
3. for all that; however.
as though, as if: It seemed as though the place was deserted.
[1150–1200; Middle English thoh < Old Norse thō; replacing Old English thēah, c. Old High German tho(h), Gothic thau(h)]
usage: Some usage guides object to the use of though in place of although as a conjunction. However, the latter (earlier all though) was orig. an emphatic form of the former, and there is nothing in contemporary English usage to justify such a distinction. Both are fully standard.
