    Re: Though, although, in spite of, despite

    Hi:

    Although, in spite of, and despite are all used in academic writing. "Though" is a slightly informal word to mean "although", but it is used in academic writing as well. Look at the Google Scholar citation result:

    Although
    Though
    In spite of
    Despite

    Best wishes,
    Nyggus

    You can also use "even though", which has a stronger emphasis than "although" has.
