    Default Adversative Conjunctions

    It is not winter, but it is almost as cold.
    It is not winter;it is, however, almost as cold.
    It is not winter, still, it is almost as cold.
    It is not winter, yet, it is almost as cold.
    It is not winter; nevertheless, it is almost as cold.


    For me, they sound very similar. I think they are both correct but number 2 and 5 are more formal. What do you think? :wink:
