Though itu artinya "meskipun, walaupun" (penggalan kata dari alhough)

Its similar with however

Sometimes we use though instead of although & Even thoiugh is a stronger
form of although

Though == kalo di taruh di akhir kalimat bisa di arti in gitu loh;. For

Additional Input from Fransiskus:

ada sebuah buku yang menurut saya cukup baik kita miliki. judulnya,
dictionary of common errors karangan ND Turton dan JB Heaton. di sana
banyak dijelaskan penggunaan kata-kata secara benar yang dalam
prakteknya sering kali dipake secara keliru tidak hanya oleh orang-orang
kayak kita ini tetapi juga native speaker-nya. buku ini bisa dicari di
gramedia (buana ilmu popular)
