Lesson Twenty-Six



This strange-looking conjunctive adverb is similar to "however," "yet" and "even so." We use "nevertheless" to present a fact that is in contrast to some other fact. "Nevertheless" usually goes in front of an independent clause, but it can also be used at the end of a clause. It’s also frequently used alongside "but."
