Even Unit 110

Unit 110



(a) Рассмотрим пример:



Our football team lost yesterday. We all played badly.

Bill is our best player but yesterday even Bill played badly.

Мы используем even, чтобы сказать, что что-то

необычно или удивительно. Мы говорим even Bill,

потому что он хороший игрок и не в его стиле

играть плохо. Если уж он играет плохо, то это,

должно быть, плохой день для всей команды.



- These photographs aren't very good. Even I could take better

photographs than these. (I'm certainly not a good photographer,

so they must be bad.)

- It's a very rich country. Even the poorest people own cars.

(so the rich people must be very rich)

- He always wears a coat - even in summer.

- Nobody would lend him the money - not even his best friend. (или

Even his best friend wouldn't lend him the money.)


(b) Очень часто мы употребляем even с глаголом в

середине предложения.

(Подробнее см. Unit 106b):


- Don has travelled all over the world. He has even been to the

Antarctic. (It's especially unusual to go to the Antarctic,

so he must have travelled a lot.)

- He always wears a tie. He even wears a tie in bed!

- They are very rich. They even have their own private jet.


Вот еще ряд примеров с not even:


- I can't cook. I can't even boil an egg. (so I certainly can't,

cook because boiling an egg is very simple)

- They weren't very friendly to us. They didn't even say hello.

- He's very fit. He's just run five miles and he's not even out

of breath.


(c) Можно использовать even со сравнительной

степенью (hotter/more surprised и т.д.):


- It was very hot yesterday but today it's even hotter.

- I got up at 6 o'clock but Jack got up even earlier.

- I knew I didn't have much money but I've got even less than I thought.

- I was surprised to get a letter from her. I was even more surprised

when she appeared at my door the next day.


(d) Можно использовать even с if, when и though:


- I'll probably see you tomorrow. But even if I don't, we're sure to

see each other before the week-end.

- He never shouts even when he's angry. (you expect people to shout

when they are angry)

- He has bought a car even though he can't drive.


Об if и when см.Unit 9.

Об even though см.Unit 109.
