PRESENT PERFECT + Just, yet, already

These words are often used with the present perfect tense 

Just’ is usually used only with the present perfect tense and it means ‘a short time ago’.
  • I’ve just seen Susan coming out of the cinema.
  • Mike’s just called. Can you ring him back please?
In the present perfect, ‘just’ comes between the auxiliary verb (‘have’) and the past participle.


Yet’ is used to talk about something which is expected to happen. It means ‘at any time up to now’. It is used in questions and negatives.
  • Have you finished your homework yet
  • I haven’t finished it yet. I’ll do it after dinner.
Yet’ usually comes at the end of the sentence.

Already’ is used to say that something has happened early – or earlier than it might have happened.
  • I’ve already spent my salary and it’s two weeks before pay day.
  • The train’s already left! What are we going to do?
Already’  comes in mid-position.
