  • (and its related forms) is most often seen in written works and formal speech. In colloquial spoken Vietnamese, speakers would prefer to use ...(thì) or some other structures instead to express what English speakers would use even if for. For example:
    mệt thì vẫn phải làm cho xong đã chứ.
    Even if you're tired, you still have (a task) you gotta complete.
