    isn't still or still isn't

    Hi everyone,

    1. He still doesn't want to go.
    2. He still isn't here.
    Sentence N2 is it correct? I know I can say "He isn't here yet", but how about "still"?
    Thank you.

    Not a teacher,

    I suggest that "He isn't here yet" is possible to say. What do you say about that Bhai?

    "He isn't here yet" is fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
