Student or Learner
Quite several grammar books and dictionaries compiled by Chinese professors of English say we can use 'although...yet': Although he was seriously wounded, (yet) he refused to quit the front battle line.
But COLLINS says not to use the 'although...yet' structure:
Although he was late, he stopped to by a sandwich.
Although he was late, yet he stopped to by a sandwich.
What do you native speakers think about this structure? Is it fine and do you often use it?
Thank you in advance.
I'm a native English speaker from the east coast of the United States. Personally, I don't use "yet" with "although", nor am I accustomed to hear it. Perhaps it's more in use in other English speaking areas?
I hope that helps,
