Even

We use even as an adverb when we want to say that something is more than what we expect. Generally, even comes before the verb:

  • Yalcin even repairs computers.
  • Jack even knows how to speak French.
  • We saw all of the attractions in the amusement park. We even rode the Ferris Wheel.

Even can also come before the subject of the sentence or other words we want to emphasize:

  • Even Jim came to the restaurant, and he doesn’t like pizza.
  • Nobody was able to fix it. Even Tom couldn’t do it, and he knows a lot about cars.
  • I work every day, even on the weekend.
  • Jane said she likes all kinds of music, even country music.
