comprehensive bank!!?!!
You want some notes on Conjunction? OK here i go.
honestly i have not gone throught spedy's or Sahils notes..,, so i might be repeating the same stuff here.



even though /although /though /however can be used to show the contrast between two sentences. or phrases(?) /clause/
Though is more informal and used in spoken English;
However, however is used in formal English.

note its flexible though...the following examples follow general trend.
eg.
Although/ even though/ though i have internet connection at home i go to cybercafe.
i have internet connection however/but i go to cybercafe.
wrong sentence: although i have internet connection however i go to cybercafe.

Have you looked at the Spidey's Sentence Correction Notes? I believe it addresses some of the topics you are looking for...

Best of luck!
