    still

    Can "still" be used in a negative sentence? If so where is it placed?

    1. I still can't understand it.
    2. I can't still understand it.
    3. I can still not understand it.

    Is the adverb used the same way with the auxiliaries "to be" and "to have"?

    Yes you can. Sentence 1. is the normal way of doing it.
    This time last year, I still hadn't been to London.
    Now, a year later, I still haven't been to London.
    Probably this time next year, I still won't have been to London.
