    Still and yet

    [teacher to teacher]

    Just curious: how likely do you think it is for a native English speaker to make an accidental tautological use of still and yet in the same sentence?

    e.g.
    I'm afraid Bob still hasn't finished his homework yet.

    I'd say it's fairly likely.
