Adverb Clauses of Unexpected Results
These adverb clauses show that an actual result may be unexpected in certain circumstances. We use the subordinating conjunctions although or even though to show that the result is not what we would expect.
Notice how the result is not what we would expect in these examples:
- Although thousands of factories polluted the air and water everyday before the 1970s, it was not illegal.
- Even though it may be difficult to do sometimes, we know that protecting our environment will keep everyone happy and healthy.
