    not even.............would

    I am studying a grammar book talking about the 'co-ordinating conjunctions'.

    __________________________________________________ _____________

    (quoted)

    Not even for a million dollars would I take part in a marathon.

    (unquoted)
    __________________________________________________ _______

    Questions

    1
    . My understanding for the above sentence is :

    I would not take part in a marathon even I get a million dollars.

    Am I right?

    2. Should I write the first letter of marathon in capital letter?

    2. Should I write the first letter of marathon in capital letter? No. Only if you spoke of one of these.

    2. Should I write the first letter of marathon in capital letter? No. Only capitalize marathon if it is a proper noun (The Boston Marathon - or the town in Greece).
