    yet

    Hi,

    "A shocking, yet incredibly moving tale..." What's the function of yet in this sentence? I would appreciate some other examples.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Re: yet

    Another one (sentence) in addition:

    "They followed him a good ways."

    I suppose this is an expression as there is "a" before the plural of a noun. I would like to see it used in some other examples.

    There's no need for 'as' before 'a'.
    "considered a classic" means "considered to be a classic".
