I read another day :
The best is yet to come ..........
My question is :
Why not : The best is still to come, as yet is more used on negative sentences.
'The best is yet to come.' is the common and accepted colocation. 'Yet' is not used only in negative sentences.
I didn´t understand your explanation.
I have taught here that YET is used in negative and interrogative sentences, according to Cambridge material.. So ....????????????
I think this is the rule you'll find in most of the British grammars but...there are more things between heaven and earth than the vain philosophy can say! (is there such a saying in English, please?)
Don't know if it's the case but the vast majority of the English courses in Brazil that teach only the basics of the language.
The English tongue, however, if way more complex and sophisticated than that.
Just a student.
