Grammar: Still, Yet, Already

Still, yet and already

a) Still

We use "still" for something going on longer than expected. The situation has not stopped.

  • It is five o'clock in the morning and Paul is still working
  • Do you still want to go on holiday?

 

1. If the verb has one part (e.g. says, does, fell, etc.), the adverb "still" usually goes before the verb.

  • I still watch 'Neighbours'
  • They still go to school

 

2. If the verb has two or more parts (e.g. am running, were watching, etc.) the adverb "still" goes after the first verb.

  • I am still eating my dinner
  • We are still going to the cinema tonight

 

3. If the sentence is negative, "still" goes before the negative.

  • I gave up smoking, but my friends still haven't given up

 

4. If you want to express surprise, "still" can go after the negative.

  • You don't still like him, do you?

 

 

b) Yet

We use "yet" to express "until now".

We use "yet" for something that is expected.

  • Have you replied to the letter yet?

1. We normally use "yet" with the present perfect.

  • I haven't eaten my breakfast yet
  • Have you been to London yet?

 

2. "Yet" goes at the end of a question or a negative statement.

  • I haven't washed my car yet
  • Have you seen your Mum yet?

 

3. We can use "yet" in the middle of a sentence, this is a little formal.

  • We have not yet reached a decision on the subject

 

 

c) Already

We use "already" for something happening sooner than expected.

  • I already know how to speak French

 

1. If the verb has one part, "already" goes before the verb.

  • She already knows how to cook

2. If the verb has two parts, "already" goes after the first verb.

  • I have already received my exam results

3. "Already" at the end of a sentence has more emphasis.

  • Have you typed the letter already? (I am surprised that you have done it so quickly)

4. You cannot use "already" with a negative sentence.
