The conjunction yet
Yet has several uses.
Yet can mean ‘in addition’.
Yet can mean ‘up to this time’.
Yet can mean ‘at some time in the future’.
Yet can mean ‘ever’, ‘still’ or ‘again’.
As a conjunction, yet means ‘nevertheless’. Its meaning is similar to but, but it seems to carry an element of distinctiveness that but doesn’t have.
In sentences such as the first one, above, the pronoun subject of the second clause is often left out. When that happens, the comma separating the two clauses might also disappear.
Yet can be used together with other conjunctions, but or and. This usage is quite acceptable.
