Though he was poor, yet he was poor.

Can we use 'though' and 'yet' together in a sentence? Please explain it to me.

The two clauses carry the same meaning. It is not a good sentence. "Yet" makes no sense there.

Though (or although) is a subordinator. Here is a proper use of though:

Though he wore the latest designer fashions and drove a Porsche, he was poor. 

Yet is a coordinating conjunction. Here is a proper use of yet:
He wore the latest designer fashions and drove a Porsche, yet he was poor.

Thanks, AlpheccaStars.

I'm sorry the sentence in my OP has a mistake. The sentence is the following.

Although he is poor, yet he is happy.

anonymousAlthough he is poor, yet he is happy.

That is improper usage of conjunctions. Here are your choices:

Although he is poor, he is happy.
He is poor, yet he is happy.

The first one is decidedly superior.


anonymous

Though he was poor, yet he was poor.

Double conjunction error.

Though is a single word subordinating conjunction. It is not a correleative like either-or, not only- but-also.

To connect 2 clauses we need only 1 conjunction.

When we begin with a conjunction, we don't have to use a 2nd conjunction. We need just a comma.

.. So, if we read in reverse sequence it should make sense.

Like: Though he was rich, yet he was a miser.

He was a miser, though was rich.


.. We have no place for yet in the other sentence.

So, don't use a 2nd conjunction.
