    Smile though in the middle of a sentence

    Hi

    Can I use a word though as follows:

    1) He parked his car on a steep hill though breaks are broken.

    2) He went on the hill for peering birds though he can't identify any.

    3) Cars are allowed to entry to this area though signs indicate otherwise.

    Thank you!

    Yes, but I'd say "even though" instead of "though" in those sentences.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Ok. In what sentences you would use though then?

    Thank you

    Re: though in the middle of a sentence

    I like Barb's reply though I wouldn't say "his brakes are broken". I would say "even though his brakes don't work" or "even though his handbrake doesn't work". If you park on a steep hill, it doesn't matter if your footbrake is working - if your handbrake isn't then you've picked a very silly place to park.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
