I have some doubts about using the word "even".
Shall I use it before a verb? before a noun? anywhere?
Could you write down a phrase using even in different places in the same sentence without changing the meaning?
I can't even understand it in my own language
I can't understand it even in my own language.
Are both of them correct? Neither of them? either of them?
Thanks in advance :)
It will alter the meaning.
Both sentences are correct grammatically, but in the first sentence, the position of "even" emphasizes your lack of understanding; in the second sentence it emphasizes the incomprehensible nature of the word/sentence whatever the language.
Even now, the weather reports are wrong. > emphasizes the present
Now, even the weather reports are wrong. > emphasizes the reports are wrong
