No recognition of walaupun?

Exercises keep insisting on just namun.

You have the option to tell Duolingo "no I think my answer was right" when yours was flagged as incorrect. The folks behind the curriculum can then consider it as a suggestion - several of mine were accepted.

Edit: I don't think "namun" and "walaupun" are synonymous, though?

You are correct, "namun" and "walaupun" are not synonymous.
namun = however
walaupun = although

Although you may think they are not synonymous, however in use it can be seen a crossing of use, although I am maybe not fully aware on the transrelationship to the Indo counterpart words, however in my observations I have seen similarities to the cross relational use, although I reserve the right to be wrong, however being right exists as a possibility too, although yes both could however be enembitable however that may be a word I just made up or although could have just misspelled however although how will we however ever know?

Questions? Although however keep em short k?
