Faster English July 3, 2024

In addition to forming affirmative sentences, it is also important to know how to use the negative form of the present perfect tense correctly. In this module, we will learn how to form negative sentences in the present perfect and how to use “not yet” in negative sentences.

6.1 Forming Negative Sentences in the Present Perfect.

To form negative sentences in the present perfect, we use the auxiliary verb “have” or “has” followed by “not” and the past participle form of the main verb. For example:

I have not finished my work yet.

She has not seen the movie.

They have not travelled to Europe before.

Note that in negative sentences, “not” always comes after the auxiliary verb.
