We use ‘still’ to talk about something, an action or a situation, that’s following, often for a longer time than expected. It hasn’t stopped or changes. ‘Still’ often is in the middle of the sentence, before the verb.

We generaly use ‘yet’ in questions and negative sentences. Saying ‘yet’ shows that we’re expecting something to happen or have happened. In spoken English ‘yet’ often is at the end of the sentence or question and is frequently used with the present perfect.
