    Yet or Nevertherless

    Hello!

    In the sentence 'Yet for two weeks little has happend in the way of adventure' what seems more natural for you yet or nevertheless?

    2. Can I use both in day-to-day conversations or one of them is more preferrable to use?

    Thanks, Alex.

    Either is OK. "Yet" might go better with "two weeks" because of the time reference.

    Re: Yet or Nevertherless

    Note Bill's automatic correction of your original to two weeks. It's plural.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
