-Is Mary home yet?
-No, but I am expecting her soon.
-Has Rob found a new job yet?
-No. He still works at the bookstore.
What are the meanings of "yet" in these sentences? "Yet" means that something did not happen before now and it is used in negative sentences. In here, both of them are affirmative sentences. I am little confused.
Thank you in advance.
Yet is commonly used in non-affirmative sentences, negative and interrogative. As we are asking about something, we are not asserting that it has happened.
