We use still to say that a situation or action is continuing. It hasn't changed or stopped. Still usually goes in the middle of the sentence with the verb.

e.g.: When I went to bed, she was still working.

Yet means "until now". We use yet mainly in negative sentences and questions. Yet shows that the speaker is expecting something to happen. Yet usually goes at the end of a sentence.

e.g.: I am hungry. Is dinner ready yet?

We use already to say that something happened sooner than expected. Already usually goes in the middle of a sentence.

e.g.: I just had lunch and I am already hungry.
