|blabby||# has redundant kana?|
I have heard this grammar used a lot right at the point where the speaker gives up in a hopeless situation. Simlar to saying "Even if ... it's too late."
The sentence usually ends in 〜ない or words such as 無理だ or 無駄だ。

|bamboo4||ところで also means "by the way" which you use in trying to change the subject. ところで、あの件はどうなったの？|| |
|Paul||The 'た' can be from any past tense verb so it could equally be だ from 読んだ and such.|| |
|yookoso||What's the difference between this grammar and ~ても (~te mo)?|| |
|TnT||This is listed as JLPT L2. However, it wasn't included in my L2 test book. I first saw it in my N1 grammar book. || |
