What does " though" mean?

by Ruben cardenas
(Austin tx , USA)

What does the word "though" mean, in English? Taking a look at Word Reference (a great website for definitions and translations) I found the following definition of "though". I created a couple of my own examples for you. I hope that makes the meaning more clear.

All the best,

THOUGH (adverb)

1 although, though, tho', despite the fact that;

1) She bought the car, even though it was more than her budget.
2) She went for a walk, even though it was raining
3) He broke up with her before the wedding, but she didn't seem to mind though.

2 though (postpositive) however;

1) It might be painful, though.
2) Your suitcase might not make the connection, though.
