    Re: as of yet

    “As of yet” is a windy and pretentious substitute for plain old English “yet” or “as yet,” an unjustified extension of the pattern in sentences like “as of Friday the 27th of May.” (from Paul Brians, Common Errors in English Usage, 2nd edn, 2008)

    It simply means up until now or less frequently up until a point of time in the past, and is often used in negative sentences. Avoid and use 'yet' or possibly 'as yet'.
