    even wounded

    Are all these sentences correct:
    1-He is dangerous, even when he is wounded.
    2-He is dangerous, even when wounded.
    3-He is dangerous, even wounded.
    4-Even wounded, he is dangerous.

    I think they all work. 3 is maybe a bit too condensed.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    #3 doesn't work for me.
    (They are all a bit strange.)

    Re: even wounded

    3 isn't very clear- it could mean the same as the others, but it could be to reinforce dangerous, which doesn't make a great deal of sense.
