Etymologies

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

The (very rare) use of this form is likely to have resulted from false assumptions about the etymology of the word "albeit". The Oxford English Dictionary explains "albeit" as having evolving from "all be it (that)" or in full "all though it be that". The impersonal "it" thus should remain unchanged even when "albeit" follows a plural noun.
