EVER

NEVER

USED WITH THE PRESENT PERFECT

Ever means 'at any time', the specific time is unknown or unnecessary, and is used in questions.

è Have you ever met a famous person ?

(Did you meet a famous person at any time in the past.)

Never is originally a contraction of 'not ever'.

Ever is also used with nothing, nobody for things that haven't happened before.

è - Nobody has ever travelled through time.

Never means the subject hasn't had a certain experience before.

è Have you ever been abroad? No, I've never been abroad.

(I've never had that experience before.)

Ever is also used with 'the first time' for first experiences.

è This is the first time I've ever eaten snake soup.

Never can be used in negative questions to show the surprise that you've never had a certain experience before.

è Have you never played soccer?
