selbst

Meanings

1.
-self
(German doesn't have a word like "myself". Instead, it stakes the normal pronouns and "selbst" is an extra word. So "myself" would be "ich selbst" or "mich selbst" or so on, depending on case.)
2.
even
(more fancy alternative for "sogar". Primarily used in writing, but I also use it in spoken German, usually in contexts of "even if A , then still no B".)
