Pls Can You Lend Me Some Rules For The Correct Use Of However And Although Pls


Hi,

HOWEVER and ALTHOUGH are Discourse Markers. This means they can show the connection between what a speaker is saying or what has already been said. they show a contast.

HOWEVER emphasize the fact that the second point said in an sentence contrasts with the first.
e.g. : I don't like the job much. HOWEVER, the money is ok.
The train was an hour late. HOWEVER, i managed to get to the meeting in time.
However is separated by a comma (,) wfrom the rest of the sentence.

ALTHOUGH is also a linking word, expressing contrast.
e.g. : ALTHOUGH i enjoy his company, i don't want him here all the time.
ALTHOUGH she read the novel, she wasn't able to talk about it.
Although is usually placed at the beginning of its clause .

They are used in formal style of writing.

Hope that helps :)
