What is the meaning of have never been?

What is the meaning of have never been?

You cannot say you have never been or you do not come. So in a situation such as this we have these phrases: “I have never been here before.” “I have never been here until now.” The meaning is that I am here now, and this is the first time.

Is it never been or never been?

Member Emeritus. In answer to your original question: “never has been” and “has never been” are interchangeable in this context. P.S.: It’s unnecessary to repeat the lengthy previous post in its entirety when replying. It’s right there where everyone can see it.

Was never been in a sentence?

“I was never been overly intimidated.” (I know “I had never been overly intimidated” is correct, but I’ve seen “was never been” a lot in the internet, such as “I was never been disappointed”.

Is never been used correct?

1 Answer. Been is the past participle of Be so I’ve never been is as grammatical as I’m not. The object is omitted as it is understood from context. Q: “Are you in France now?” A: “No, I’m not, and I’ve never been.”

Which is correct ” I have never been here before ” or ” I had never been there before “?

1. “I have never been here before.” 2. “I had never been here before.” I think No.2 should be the correct one logically because you are here now and now is the time you can perceive as the present which is included in the present perfect tense. But I’m not sure of the effect of the word ‘before”.

Do you add before before you have never been?

Adding before restricts the “have never been” to the past and removes the contradiction. Perhaps just my opinion, but as a native speaker I might easily omit “before” and I wouldn’t take any notice of whether someone added it or not. If they’re here now, then it’s implicitly speaking about the past. – Darren Ringer Apr 19 ’18 at 13:26

Is the ” before ” used correctly in sentence ” I have never?

Before can be used as an adverb (or as some grammarians call it, a prepositional adverb). Sure, that’s fine too. The use of “today” or “now” is unnecessary in the sentence. When you use the adverb “never”, it means ” not at any time/not in your whole life up to the present”.

When do you say ” there ” and ” here “?

The answer to the question you asked is very clear: we say “here” when you are describing a place you are in (physically or metaphorically), and “there” when you’re describing something you are far from or separate from.
