Use of и
I just came across the sentence "Хотя он и пообещал, он не пришёл" which translates to "even though he promised to come, he didn’t”. I'm confused as to why the word "и", which as far as I'm aware means "and", appears in this sentence, especially in such a strange place. Why is it used here? Thanks.

"И" can express other meanings too. In this case, as already mentioned, it’s used with "хотя" which translates as even though. И can also mean “even”, for example Он и спасибо не сказал – He didn’t even say thank youVote Up Vote Down
