    i am confused of using "just yet"!

    I, by chance, glanced at a para in which a sentence ran " Michael will not be going back to buy your ring just yet". what is "Just yet"'s role? should we omit them? thank you so much!

    Re: i am confused of using "just yet"!

    You could omit "just" and it would mean the same thing. However, "just" does add a nuance. It suggests that he won't be doing it yet but there's a chance that he might do it very soon. Sometimes, it depends how we say it, not just the words.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
