TOEIC Grammar Lesson - How To Use YetAug 23, 2023
How do we use the adverb of time, YET?
There are a variety of English grammar patterns that are tested on the TOEIC® exam. Yet is one of the adverbs of time that often appears in Part V and Part VI.
We use YET to say that something that we expected hasn’t happened. Usually, yet comes at the end of a sentence.
- Let’s wait a few more minutes. It hasn’t stopped raining yet.
- Have you heard from Jack yet?
In formal English, YET can come between the auxiliary verb and the main verb:
- I haven’t yet found a good pizza shop near my office.
- I don't yet know the details of the new company vacation policy.
We use YET as a conjunction to introduce something that is surprising or unexpected.
- Mr. Waters never finished university, yet he became the head of a major international company.
- In the last quarter, sales were up, yet profits were low.
👉 Keep in mind the best way to remember this grammar or any grammar or vocabulary in English is to take the word or phrase, write it in a sentence that's true for you or true in your world, and then memorize your sentences.
