Is there anything inappropriate in using “so far” (with the meaning “till now”) in a negative sentence? Eg: I have not come across such a thing so far in my life.


Your sentence is perfectly valid.

  • You invited me into this stupid haunted house, but I haven't seen a single ghost so far.

  • I said I'd raise your salary when you started working harder, but so far I haven't noticed a difference.

  • I've never been to Ireland so far, but I am going next September.
