Examples of usage for yet:

  1. Yet and still have many closely related senses, and, with verbs of past time, are often interchangeable; we may say " while he was yet a child," or " while he was still a child." Yet, like still, often applies to past action or state extending to and including the present time, especially when joined with as; we can say " he is feeble as yet," or " he is still feeble," with scarcely appreciable difference of meaning, except that the former statement implies somewhat more of expectation than the latter. Yet with a negative applies to completed action, often replacing a positive statement with still; " he is not gone yet" is nearly the same as " he is here still." Yet has a reference to the future which still does not share; " we may be successful yet" implies that success may begin at some future time; " we may be successful still" implies that we may continue to enjoy in the future such success as we are winning now.
