Masters thesis  
von mdh, 2020-08-06, 07:57  like dislike  Spam?  84.118.220....
Hi there,

I'm correcting a Masters thesis and come across "albeit" ever so often. Although the word is legitimate and in the dictionary, I think it is not used quite as often nowadays.

What do you think?

"albeit" is a word that people go on using, albeit other people say it's out of date.
Even if it's true that "albeit" is not much used now, I don't see that as a reason why it shouldn't be used at all.

Many thanks. Just wanted to know if it has become obsolete.

I only changed it once to although, which makes a non-native student of English perhaps more credible.

I use it, but only occasionally. You probably wouldn't notice it  in everyday speech because you'd probably just hear "all be it", which is exactly how "albeit" is pronounced. I use it in both spoken and written language, albeit not with any great frequency.

It's great talking to you folks.
Had lost track of this link or a similar one that told us which words were used more frequently.

Sounds so Shakesperean to me, but good to know it is being revived.

Thanks again

Between the Wars, HW Fowler had relegated albeit to Wardour Street. Contemporary editors (2nd LINK) have had to revise his judgement.
