bamboo4How did we end up with many duplicate examples?
 
dcI put in the same ones twice, oops. 
Kanemiyaex # "He gave me what little money he had on him."

ex # "Even though he didn't have much he gave me all that he had" or"Even though he didn't have much he gave it all to me"

ex # "Even though a woman she fought bravely" or "Even though she was only a woman she fought bravely"

ex # "Even though he was only a child he was brave" or "He was brave even though only a child."

These sound more natural to me.
