1) Hans does not know how to speak English yet.
Could you also say " Hans does not know how to speak English already." if you say that the word "already" does not
refer to the whole sentence but only to that bit "...how to speak English." - in the sense of " how to already speak
When it comes to forming a question like " Does Hans know how to speak English yet?", could you also say " Does Hans already know how to speak English?" if a positive or affirmative answer is expected by the person asking the question, as
is the case with "some" in questions like " Would you like some wine? " because a yes - answer is expected?
Is the word " already " sometimes used in spoken English although "yet" would be correct?
Looking forward to your answers!
Hello from Germany
Thank you very much for your opinion on my questions and your time.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
As your answers are really helpful, especially as my last question is concerned, I would like to know if "already" is correct in this sentence.
1) "I am not thinking of already leaving the party although I have to go to work very early tomorrow."
or would this version be correct: 2) "I am not thinking of leaving the party yet although I have to go to work very early tomorrow."
