    As of yet ...

    Dear Forum Users,

    Could anyone please explain what 'as of yet' means? I saw it in sentence initial position, as in:

    As of yet, ...

    Thank you.

    Csika

    Up to this point in time. (The time when the sentence is written or spoken.)

    To my ear the 'of' is redundant, but I recognize that a lot of people say it.
