Still, yet and already
Still is used to talk about an action or situation that has not finished.
Yet is used to talk about something which has not happened – it is expected to happen in the future.
In questions yet can be used to ask whether something expected has happened.
Yet is occasionally used in affirmative sentences. In that case it has a similar meaning to still.
Already is used to say that something has happened sooner than expected.
In British English, already and yet are commonly used with perfect tenses. In American English, past tenses are often preferred.
