yet的用法

各位高手:

以下是美國供應商的回覆,我要跟對方要先前交貨的相關資料

看了整段他應該是要說很幸運資料還在,但最後一句

我覺得對方是不是少了個not?

請各位幫忙解答,多謝!

Found 2 orders; one in 2004 (Applied Job #o45405) and one in 2007 (Job # o71746). And the luck is with you. Normally our record retention is six to eight years after the last job (thus anything in the 2004-2006 range is in “jeopardy” anything beyond that has been destroyed and just yesterday they started pulling the 2004 records to be destroyed …. but it has been done yet ).

    "yet" in this kind of sentence can have two different ways to use:

    (a)

    up to now: so far

    He hasn't done much yet.

    (b)

    when it is used to imply the negative of a following infinitive

    The team has yet to win a game.

    Hence, you are RIGHT, it does miss "NOT" in the sentence.

    If you don't want to have "not" in the sentence, you can write it as:

    but it is (still) yet to be done.
