How do you spell still?

It is impossible to say unequivocally how to spell as before. You need to know the whole sentence in which this word stands, and its meaning. "Still" can be an adjective with a preposition and adverb. Consider both options.

  1. Example. “People were still running around the street, cars were running.” As before - this is an adverb, answers the question “How did you run?” Such adverbs have suffixes — to him, to him, or to boys, and to say: still, young, good, bad. Such adverbs are written only with a hyphen. Consequently, when the “still” is an adverb in a sentence, we write this: still.
  2. If this is an adjective, then the word is written separately, because “for” is a preposition here, and “former” is an adjective. For example: "We walked along the old path that was supposed to lead us to the village." The path is a noun, the adjective “former” refers to it, they form the phrase “still the path”. The word answers the question: “Which way?” - as before.When "still" is an adjective with a preposition in a sentence, we write them separately.

To understand how to write this word correctly in a sentence, you need to look at the context and ask a question for the word. Well, how do you spell still in each of these cases, you already know.
