Abstract: Starting out from observations in English linguistics, the paper makes a case that final though is an English particle. An experimental study is conducted indicating that though is permissive outside of concessive contexts as well. The focus of this study is placed on corpus examples which have remained unaccounted for in previous approaches. A descriptive generalization is proposed in terms of noteworthiness and an initial modelling in terms of a split notion of Common Ground following Bar-Asher Siegal & Boneh (2016) is pursued.
