I don't say despite. I say in spite of.
Yea, both should be accepted. I go it wrong for saying in spite of.
I wholly agree with you, and it was a given definition in the drop-down answers.
If "though" is correct, then why isn't "although"??
Same thing here...
Is this a contextual based thing? If not I suspect there is some correction warranted here. 'Ter' = to have, yet the word 'feeling' is employed.
