    even

    "We're so popular even in the outer space".

    Is this right? I'm not using 'even though' because there isn't any dependent clause.

    Re: even

    It would make more sense to say 'We're so popular, even in the Outer Hebrides'.

    How about this?

    "We're so popular and even in [place]".

    Re: even

    Note that we don't say "the outer space". The article is not necessary.

    We're very popular - even in outer space!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
