    not for

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-I have been here for not three days.
    2-I have been here for not three days yet.
    3-I have been here for not even three days.

    4-I have been here not for three days.
    5-I have been here not for three days yet.
    6-I have been here not even for three days.

    Only the third one is correct. The sixth one would be correct if for was not in that sentence.
