3. in the time still remaining; before all is done: There is yet time.
Paraphrased: 'Before all is done, the changes may
yetprove to be more profound than in Libya or Egypt.'
I am not sure what is "all" referring to in the phrase "before all is done". Therefore, I checked another dictionary and found its definition 3 as "At a future time; eventually: may yet change his mind."
Do you think if it is correct to rewrite the sentence as "the changes may prove to be more profound than in Libya or Egypt eventually"?
Hi does anyone know if yet in my quoted sentence mean eventually? Thanks!
