Hi everyone:)!

Withal? Is it a formal or an informal linking word? Is it much used?

Thanks in advance!
Hi Pucca,

It's not that common, but it's not rare either. If you google it, you'll see some uses.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hello Barb:),

Thanks for your reply!

I googled the word, and it says that it can be an additional linker aswell, isn't that confusing? I mean, if you read the word, there are two ways to understand that word, aren't there? Maybe in a context will be easier..
Here's one way: He had a large but nevertheless nimble body.

Here's another way. I know you don't want to clean your room. Nevertheless, you must.
Does withal have the same possition as "nevertheless" has?
- I know you don't want to clean your room. Withal, you must.
- I have to get up early withal I don't want to.

Would those sentences be correct?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I have never heard withal used in my life, nor have I used it. Perhaps it's still used in the UK?
Hmm..then, who can help us? Emotion: thinking
