    Post comma after "Though"

    Do I need a comma after
    Though the protest was evoked by the Egyptians , the Egyptians were driven by what Hosni Mubarak did to Egypt and inspired by the protest in Tunisia.

    Mulk,


    I have 100% confidence in saying that you are 100% correct: it needs

    that comma.

    When you say that sentence aloud, do you notice how you are almost

    forced to pause and take a brief rest? Well, that pause is represented

    by a comma.

    If "Though the protest was evoked by the Egyptians" were placed

    at the end of the sentence, then you would not need a comma in front

    of "Though."

    For example:

    Although/ even though/ though I like you, [pause]I am not going to

    lend you $1,000.

    I am not going to lend you $1,000 although/even though/ though I

    like you.
