    and yet = but yet?

    Hi,

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/yet_2

    ''She does not speak our language and yet she seems to understand what we say.''

    I would like to ask if we can use 'but yet' instead of 'and yet' as in:

    1. She does not speak our language but yet she seems to understand what we say.
    2. She does not speak our language but she seems to understand what we say yet.
    3. She does not speak our language but she seems to understand yet what we say.

    I think sentence 1 could be OK but cannot make sure of the rest.

    Thanks.

    Re: and yet = but yet?

    As but and yet mean the same in this context, one of them is redundant.
