Hi,

Can we use 'just, already and yet' with continuous tenses or present/ past perfect continuous tenses?

Thanks.

What do you think?

1)I have already been doing my homework.

2)I am already doing my homework.

3)When you called me, I was already doing my homework.

4)When you called me, I was doing my homework yet.

5)I am doing my homework yet.

I have just been able to construct these sentences, and I can say that using 'yet and already' with continuous is OK, but I couldn't figure out with 'just' with any continuous tense.

and 3 are OK, the rest are not. Try again.

I can't see the number(s) before 'and', do you mean sentence 1, 2 and 3 are OK?

Sentences 2 and 3 are OK, the rest are not.

Sorry, I meant to write 2 and 3.

I have found an example used 'yet' with continuous tense.

'I'm not doing the hula yet': Oprah reflects on her battle to turn OWN into a success.

Can you see the difference between that example and your two with "yet"?
