    Question 'Though' in the end of a sentence

    Is it correct to say 'Sorry to hear about your friend though'? I was actually talking on some other topic with a friend of mine but added that sentence in the end as i came to know his friend didn't get a job he wanted desperately.

    I hope you understood my question
    waiting for the answer :)

    Yes, you can add "though" at the end of a sentence given the proper context.

    Not a teacher

    though adverb


    used especially at the end of a sentence to add a fact or an opinion that makes the previous statement less strong or less important
    Our team lost. It was a good game though.
    ‘Have you ever been to Australia?’ ‘No. I'd like to, though.’

    Ayesha, your use was correct. Gurpreet provided you a couple of examples.

    Re: 'Though' in the end of a sentence

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Ayesha:

    May I add another example to the excellent examples cited in post #4?

    I was reading an article last night when I read a sentence that immediately reminded me of your thread.

    The first paragraph of the article says that two very important countries are very angry with each other.

    The second paragraph says that they are so angry that they may actually go to war against each other.

    The third paragraph starts with this sentence:

    "This conflict doesn't have to end badly, though."

    The other paragraphs then explain how the two nations can settle the matter in a peaceful way.
