    Adverbs of time

    Yet, already, still, and anymore are adverbs of time.

    They have different meanings and are used in different types of sentences.

    Yet shows that we expect some action to take place in the future.It is used in yes/no questions and negative statements at the end of the sentence.

    ◊Examples: - Have you finished yet?

                       - I haven't received the letter yet.

    Already shows that an expected activity has happened. It is used in questions and affirmative statements, usually in the middle of the sentence.

    ◊Examples: - Have you already mailed the package?

                       - Dinner has already been served.


    Still shows that a situation continues to exist from the past to the present. It is used in questions and statements in the middle of the sentence.

    ◊Examples: - Does he still live in Los Angeles?

                        - Yes, he still lives there.

    Still can also carry a negative meaning. It implies that someone is spending too much time doing something.

    ◊Example:  - He still hasn't finished what he was told to do.

    Anymore shows that a past situation is over and doesn't continue to exist. It is used in yes/no questions and negative statements at the end of the sentence. It is frequently used with still to show a contrast.

    ◊Example: - I don't go to the gym anymore, but I still exercise every day.
