    Adverbs of Time - ago / already / anymore / just / yet / still



    These adverbs give additional information about when something happens




    Ago


    Ago simply means in the past. For example


    I graduated university 3 years ago


    We moved to Canada just 2 months ago



    Already


    Already is used when something happens before it is expected. For example


    He's only 13, but he already speaks three languages


    Can you finish this by tomorrow? Sure, it's already finished


    You don't need to feed the dog, I've already done it



    Anymore


    Anymore is used when something has been changed from what we expect.For example


    I want to email her, but her address isn't working anymore
    (It worked before, but not now)


    My friend used to live here, but she doesn't live here anymore


    I don't want to work here anymore. (I wanted to work here, but no I don't like working here)



    Just


    Just is used for something that happened very recently.For example


    I just found out my test score, I got an A


    What was that noise? - Sorry, I just broke a glass


    You can also use Just about for something that will happen very soon


    Are you finished? - Yes, I'm just about to go home


    I'm hungry. - If you wait 5 minutes, I'm just about to make some lunch



    Still


    Still is used when something happens for longer than expected. For example


    Did you get a new job? No, I'm still working at my old one


    She's 65 years old, but she still exercises 3 times a week


    Still is also used to confirm that an activity or situation is continuing and that nothing has changed. For example


    Are you still studying English? Yep, I still study a little every day


    Do you still want to go abroad? Of course, I'd love to



    Yet


    Yet is used when something hasn't happened that is expected. It isused negative sentences and questions.For example


    Are you finished? No, I'm not finished yet


    Has the mail come yet? No, it's not here yet


    Still can be used with a similar meaning.For example


    My parents haven't arrived yet


    My parents still haven't arrived


    Still in negative sentences and questions often shows impatience or that something is unexpected


    Note that yet is usually at the end of the sentence, wheras still comes before the negative form
