  1. Expressing that an Action Hasn’t Occurred Yet:
  • “She has yet to decide whether she will accept the job offer.”
  • “They have yet to finish the project, even though the deadline is approaching.”
  1. Highlighting Delay or Anticipation:
  • “The movie has yet to be released, but the trailers look promising.”

  1. Indicating Non-fulfillment or Incompletion:
  • “The committee has yet to reach a consensus on the matter.”
  • “He has yet to apologize for his mistake, causing further tension in the team.”
  1. Signifying Absence or Lack:
  • “Despite extensive research, scientists have yet to find a cure for the disease.”
