Never at the end?

the lesson empathizes that pas encore is never used at the end of a sentence, but there are contradictory examples: On ne travaille pas encore. Thanks for your help

This relates to:
Ne ... pas encore = Not yet -

Bonjour Stevenson !

What it means is that you won't ever have "pas encore" detached from the verb at the end of a longer sentence with objects, as such:

Je ne connais pas encore ma leçon. -> Je ne connais ma leçon pas encore.
I don't know my lesson yet.
I've updated the lesson to make that point clearer.

Merci et à bientôt !
