GRAMMAR: The difference between HOWEVER and NEVERTHELESS?

Many students (and native speakers!) have problems knowing when to use however and nevertheless.

We use however and nevertheless to show contrast in a sentence. Usually, the first half of a sentence contrasts (opposes) the second half.

Casual ECI Selling Casual ECI Dress ECI Selling Selling Casual Dress Look at these two examples:

  1. I already knew a lot about the subject; however, his presentation was still interesting.
  2. I knew a lot about the subject already, but his presentation was interesting nevertheless.

Notice how the second half of each sentence presents something unexpected? Can you see a contrast from the first part of the sentence? Both these sentences highlight a contrast, they mean 'despite this' or 'despite what has just been stated'.

Here's the main difference between the two words: nevertheless is a little more formal and emphatic (e.g., surprising) than however. Nevertheless is also not used as often as however.

Study these examples to see how the words are used:

  • I'm a vegetarian. However, sometimes I eat fish.
