In this lesson, I will teach you how to pronounce albeit. We will also practise saying ‘albeit’ in repeat-after-me phrases.
The word ‘albeit’ (conjunction) comes from a Middle English expression which meant ‘all be it’. Eventually, the three words evolved into a single word, ‘albeit’.
‘Albeit’ is a formal word that can be used in many of the same instances as the word ‘although’. The reason I might choose the word ‘albeit’ is because the word is more sophisticated and advanced than ‘although’. In other words, ‘albeit’ has a higher register than ‘although’. A person who uses this word in their business English will make an intelligent impression.
How to Pronounce Albeit: Example Phrases
- He has a very good idea, albeit a strange one.
- It was a good film, albeit rather long.
- The restaurant was nice, albeit expensive.
- Following my operation, I’m able to walk again, albeit unsteadily.
