Still – Yet – Already
English Grammar Rules
Three adverbs that often cause difficulty are still, yet, and already.
They are all used when actions are going to happen, or are expected to happen, or were unexpected around the present time. Here we go into more detail about the difference between still, yet and already:
Still is used to say an action or situation continues to the present because it has not finished.
It often refers to something happening for longer than expected.
Notice the position of still before the verb or adjective.
- My grandfather is sixty-nine and he still works every day at the kiosk he owns.
- Do you still live with your parents?
- It’s 8pm, and I can’t leave the office because I still have work to do.
- Are you still angry with your partner?
- He is still asleep so don’t wake him up.
If the verb has two parts, still goes between both the verbs:
- She started her exam an hour ago and she is still answering the questions.
- Is it still snowing? (= it continues to snow, it hasn’t stopped)
- When I went to bed, Angelica was still working.
But if one of the two verbs is negative, still goes before that negative verb:
- Lucy has stopped smoking but her brother still hasn’t quit.
- I took the clock to the repair shop though it still isn’t working.
Yet refers to an action that is expected in the future. It is not used in the past.
To ask if something expected has happened. It is usually placed at the end of the sentence or question.
- Are we there yet? (A typical question kids ask while taking car trips with their parents)
- Is the report ready yet?
- Hasn’t your mother told you yet? We’re moving to Alaska!
To say that something expected hasn’t happened:
- Mary can’t go home yet, she hasn’t finished her work.
- They haven’t paid me yet. (I was expecting to paid before now.)
- My parents haven’t kicked me out of their house yet.
Yet is occasionally used in affirmative sentences, giving the sentences a similar meaning as the use of still. Note that this is more formal and not common.
- We have yet to hear the big news from Aunt Martha.
= We are still waiting to hear the big news from Aunt Martha.
Often, we use still and yet together to explain why an action is continuing.
- I am still studying at the university because I haven’t graduated yet.
- We still don’t know who will be our new boss. The owners haven’t told us yet.
- I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to quit my job to go travel. I’m still thinking about it.
Already is used to refer to an action that happened sooner than expected.
It is used in affirmative sentences in the present or past, but never future.
- A: Ask Katie to send the article to her editor. B: She has already sent it.
- I already know what I’m going to buy you for your birthday.
- They’ve already seen “Spiderman 15” and really don’t want to see it again.
Notice the placement of already in the examples below:
- Is Mary already here? She must have driven very fast to get here before me.
- How does he already have the answers to tomorrow’s test?
- Have they already obtained their visas?
In present tense sentences, it is placed between the subject and verb.
In present and present perfect questions, it comes immediately after the subject.
However, in present perfect sentences, the order is subject + have+ already + past participle.

We often use just, yet, still and already with the present perfect because they are related to the present moment. This page focuses on the meaning and use of these words when they are used with the present perfect.
Just used with the present perfect means ‘a short time before’.

Just comes between the auxiliary verb (have/has) and the past participle.

A. Where’s Sam? B: He hasn’t arrived yet.
Yet comes at the end of the sentence or question.

Still comes between the subject (the bus, they, etc.) and auxiliary verb (haven’t/hasn’t).
Already used with the present perfect means ‘before now’. We use it to emphasise that something happened before something else or earlier than expected.

Already can come between the auxiliary and the main verb or at the end of the clause.

샘김 (Sam Kim) – Love Me Like That (알고있지만, OST) [Music Video]
샘김 (Sam Kim) 가창 JTBC 토요스페셜 ‘알고있지만,’ OST Part.6 발매
동명의 인기 웹툰을 원작으로 한 JTBC 화제의 드라마 ‘알고있지만,’의 여섯 번째 OST가 공개된다.
샘김이 참여한 ‘알고있지만,’의 여섯 번째 OST ‘Love Me Like That’은 서정적인 기타 사운드와 아티스트의 호소력 짙은 보이스가 완벽한 조화를 이루는 어쿠스틱 팝 장르의 곡이다.
본인을 있는 그대로, 느껴지는 그대로 사랑해 주길 바라는 주인공의 간절한 마음을 진솔하게 그려내며 듣는 이들의 애절한 감성을 자극한다.
샘김의 가슴 따뜻한 음색은 주인공의 사랑에 대한 절실한 소망을 섬세하게 풀어낸다. 미세한 숨소리까지 조절하는 샘김 특유의 독보적인 창법은 듣는 이들의 내면을 짙게 물들이며 극의 애틋함을 극대화한다.
‘알고있지만,’은 사랑은 못 믿어도 연애는 하고 싶은 여자 유나비와 연애는 성가셔도 썸은 타고 싶은 남자 박재언의 하이퍼리얼 로맨스를 그린 드라마로 송강, 한소희 등 원작과 100% 싱크로율을 자랑하는 배우들의 출연으로 첫 방송 이후 호평을 이어가고 있다.
샘김이 가창한 ‘Love Me Like That’은 있는 그대로 날 사랑해 주길 바라는 주인공의 진실된 마음을 전하며 애틋한 로맨스를 선사할 전망이다.
