    When or how to use though at the end of a sentence? Is there any different between though and however?

    Can you post a sentence in which you would put "though" at the end?

    There are differences between "though" and "however" but context would be important.

    Re: when or how to use though at the end of a sentence?

    I'm confused when using word "though" (the meaning, using). Sometimes, It's at the beginning, middle or the end of a sentence.
    Example:


    • We could try to phone her before we go, though we might miss the train if we do.
    • What does remain though is a very distinct Lime scent.
    • Iím sorry, I canít stay for lunch. Iíll have a coffee, though.
    • What a lovely sunny day! Thereís a chilly wind, though, isnít there?

    Example:


    • We could try to phone her before we go, though we might miss the train if we do. Correct.
    • What does remain, though, is a very distinct lime scent. Correct (note commas and no need for capital "l" on "lime".)
    • Iím sorry, I canít stay for lunch. Iíll have a coffee, though. Correct.
    • What a lovely sunny day! Thereís a chilly wind, though, isnít there? Correct.
    These are all good examples.
