III- Video Transcript
Hello and welcome to this video! Let’s find out when to use: “just”, “yet”, “still”, and “already”
Now “just” means a short time ago.
“Yet” is used when something is expected to happen or is at any time up to now.
So we tend to use “yet” a lot some questions and negative statements.
“Still” we use for something that is ongoing and expected to finish earlier.
And finally “already” is for something that is has finished early or easier than planned. Now in use, a few examples here. In red we have two examples that include a perfect tense. We have placed “just” and “already” between the auxiliary and the past participle
“She has just left.” We are using a present perfect here. It’s a perfect tense. We place “just” between the auxiliary and the past participle. The same thing goes with “already”. We’re using the past perfect: “I had already seen her”. “Already” is placed between the auxiliary and the past participle. “I haven’t seen her yet”: there we’re using a perfect tense. However “yet” tends to be placed at the end of the statement.
And finally “still”. “Are they still waiting?” “Still” doesn’t work with perfect tenses. It can work with lots of tenses. It’s simply placed between the auxiliary and the present participle in this case.
That’s it for today!
