Although bough, dough and through are all spelled with an 'ough', they are all pronounced quite different from each other (apart from although and dough!). The unfortunate thing about words in '-ough' is that the '-ough' is not always pronounced the same, e.g. in 'cough' it is heard as 'off' but in 'though' it is heard as a short 'oh'.
