Correct use of albeit.
ALBEIT = EVEN TOUGH = EVEN IF = ALTHOUGH
Albeit is a conjunction often used to introduce an adjectival or adverbial phrase that makes a concession about the preceding noun or verb—for example:
- His house was expensive, albeit small.
- He visited, albeit briefly.
- He visited, albeit especially briefly.
To use ‘even though’ or ‘although’ the sentence would have to contain a clause [Remember a clause has a subject and a verb] following the conjunction:
- His house was expensive, even tough it was small.
- He visited, although his visit was brief
- He visited, even if it was especially brief.
What you can’t do with albeit but can certainly do with although is introduce independent clauses. This is one of the reasons why the two words are not always interchangeable.
- We decided to buy the car, albeit the price made us hesitate.
- We decided to buy the car, although the price made us hesitate.
- Canadian economy headed for solid, albeit slower 2018
- Digitisation of insurance policies picking up albeit slowly
- Card registration to impact XL growth, albeit short term
- Once again, we abide by his wishes, albeit reluctantly.
- He’d even made the coffee, albeit insipidly.
