How are the sentence connectors "Although, though, and however" used in face saving mechanism?

Pronounciation[edit]

My Longman dict gives the pronounciation of although as /ɔːlˈðəʊ/: with a long o in the first syllable, but the emphasis on the second. The pron currently in the article gives a short o. I won't change it now, but somebody please check if the short o is correct. – b_jonas 13:10, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

The only pronunciation with which I am familiar in the UK has a long O. I note that someone has changed the US pronunciation to have a long O as well since b_jonas' comment. I've left the rfp in place for now. Thryduulf 22:27, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
The General American dialect has no contrastive vowel length. I can find no evidence for vowel length variation in this word for UK pronunciation, so I'm killing the template. —Leftmostcat 02:30, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
