#96 | Present Perfect with EVER, NEVER, BEFORE, JUST, ALREADY, RECENTLY, STILL e YET – Part II

No post anterior, trouxe alguns usos bastante comuns do presente perfeito. Agora, você vai apresentar algumas partículas que costumamos usar no mesmo tempo verbal.

EVER = já, alguma vez em sua vida (em perguntas)

  • Have you ever driven a truck?
  • Has he ever been to a circus?

NEVER = nunca

  • I’ve never been to New York.
  • She’s never seen me.

BEFORE = antes

  • We’ve been here before.
  • I’ve never stayed in a five-star hotel before.

JUST = acabar de (ação que acabou de acontecer em um passado próximo)

  • The plane has just landed. The passengers are getting their carry-on.
  • The store has just closed; you cannot go in now.
    Note: No inglês americano, não costumamos usar o JUST no presente perfeito, mas o passado simples. (The store just closed.)

ALREADY = já (usado em frases interrogativas e afirmativas)

  • Have you already told her the news?
  • I’ve already done my homework.

RECENTLY = recentemente

  • Have you seen her recently?
  • I haven’t travelled much recently.

YET = já (usado em frases interrogativas)

  • Has the bus arrived yet?
  • Have you had lunch yet?

STILL e YET = ainda (usados em frases negativas, mas em posições distintas nas frases)

  • Our pizzas haven’t come yet.
  • We still haven’t had our exam results.
