It depends on its position. Thus, it can change the meaning depending on where it is used. For example, "I'll leave native complete my answer, though ". Here it conveys the same idea with 'however'
Another possibility is when it is used like 'although/despite(that)'.
It's worth trying though it's risky.

    Etymologically, "though" predates "although," the latter being a contraction of "all" and "though" and being equivalent to "even though."

    As for "though" itself, Merriam-Webster's Unabridged Dictionary offers two definitions when the word occurs in the pre-position: In spite of the FACT that or in spite of the POSSIBILITY that. In the post-position, it is equivalent to "however" and similar terms.
