Is there a difference in the meanings of (or in the shades of meanings of):
1-I have met him before.
2-I have already met him.
3-I have met him already.
Oh yes. There's a difference. :wink:

'I have met him already" is, I think, the same as number 2 but stronger (more emphatic).
I think number bthree, the more emphatic form, is the one most likely to mean that a second introuction is unnecessary, although 2 would work, too.
