    Adverbs and frequency

    STILL              Indicates that something is happening or not happening up the present.

                          The situation has not stopped.

                          They still go to school.

                          It is still raining.

    ANYMORE       Used with negative statements and questions.

                         ANYMORE shows that something is finished or not happening.

                         We often use it at the end of the sentence.

                         I don't want to visit you anymore.

                         I can't take it anymore.

    YET               This means that something that we expected has happened or not happened, until now

                        We use 'yet' with the Present Perfect.

                        It goes at the end of a question or negative sentence.

                        Using 'yet' in the middle a sentence makes it a little formal.

                        Have you received the letter yet?

                        He hasn't yet reached a decision about it.


    ALREADY     This means that something happened sooner than expected.

                      In the Present Perfect 'already'usually goes in the middle of a sentence before the main verb.

                      I have already done my homework.

                      'Already' at the end of a sentence has more emphasis.

                      Have you done your homework already? ( someone is surprised that you have done it so quickly )

                      She already knows how to cook dinner.

    ALWAYS     Used to show that something happens all the time or very often.

                      I always go to church on Sundays.

                      He is always complaining.
