At the beginning of a clause, "although", "even though", and "though" all mean "in spite of the fact that".

Although I was tired, I got up and went to work.
Even though I was tired, I got up and went to work.
Though I was tired, I got up and went to work.

"though" by itself at the end of a clause means the same as "however" or "nevertheless" at the beginning of the same clause:

He's a terrible dancer. He sings well, though. =
He's a terrible dancer. [Nevertheless / However] he sings well.

"though", but not "although" or "even though", can be used in inversion with an adjective:

Tired though I was, I got up and went to work.

And careful: "though" means "if" in the grouping "as though".

He looked as though he had seen a ghost. = He looked as if he had seen a ghost.

Emotion: smile
