364. Many patients insist on having watches with them in hospital, even though they have no schedules to keep.
I must insist on more regular hours.我必须坚持按时起居。
I insist on your taking immediate action to put this right.我坚决要求你立刻采取行动，把事情处理好。
此时，insist on表达的含义相当于insist that...，只是后者所接的宾语从句应用虚拟语气。如上句可以改写为:
I insist that you(should)take immediate action to put this right.
even though意为“即使”，可以引导让步状语从句。除此之外，引导让步状语从句的连接词还有:although, though, even if, however, whatever, whenever, whoever, whichever。如:
※ Even though I hadn't seen my classmate for many years，I recognized him immediately。虽然多年没有见过我的同学，我还是立刻认出了他.:_.
※ Although/Though I gave him some advice, he didn't take them，尽管我给了他一些建议，他并没有采纳:
※ John continued to work hard even ifleven though he felt sick.虽然感觉不舒服，约翰仍然坚持努力工作。
