(i) Used as an intensive especially to indicate something unexpected ‘Many people think that it snows in Norway even in the summer.’ ‘I don't have even a dollar!’ (2)To a greater degree or extent; used with comparisons: ‘She looked sick and felt even worse.’

To introduce a subordinate clause, use even if, even though or even when (NOT even on its own): ‘You’ll have to accept the invitation, even though you don’t want to.’ ‘Even when my father is angry, he never raises his voice.’
