"You were not there any more."
Translation:Už jste tam nebyli.
You can't have both byls and nebyl in one sentence.
The original form, from which you derive other forms, is "nebyl jsi". You can often change "jsi" to just an enclitic (a suffix to a preceding word) "-s". So:
Nebyl jsi tam.
Tys tam nebyl.
Nebyls tam ty.
Tam jsi nebyl ty.
(colloquial?) Tams nebyl ty.
Už jsi tam nebyl.
(colloquial?) Užs tam nebyl.
Nebyls tam už.
They are not equivalent, but I want to illustrate the usage of the -s.
@pollyhs (guess we're too far down in the tree because i can't answer directly)
A little late maybe, but anyway. You can't say "už nebyls tam", because (like vlada said before) the s has to be in second position. And here it's in third:
The "jsi" /"jste" you need because of the "you"
I'm GUESSING here, but maybe "ještě" is missing from the hints and/or word bank because it wouldn't work in this sentence. According to the link below -- which may or may not be authoritative -- "any more" is not one of the translations of "ještě."
I came here to ask if you can say "Užs tam nebyl", just out of curiosity. I see that someone said that it is sometimes said colloquially but would technically be considered incorrect.
But I'm wondering--is užs pronounceable? Do you put a vowel sound in between the ž and the s? So far everything has seemed very phonetic, with the exception of the j in the present tense of být not being pronounced (as far as I can hear).
In general, do you not attach the s to a word that ends in a sibilant?
Don't forget that "jsi" wants to be in the second position. It can be shortened to "-s" but then it attaches itself to the first unit (so that it's still in the second position itself).
Some of the many possible correct answers:
- Už jsi tam nebyla. = Užs tam nebyla.
- Nebyla jsi tam už. = Nebylas tam už.
- Tam jsi už nebyla. = Tams už nebyla.
Sure it is not available, because it is not the main translation. Only words for the main translation are available in the word tiles. You will have to use the keyboard input for other possible translations.

Ups, seems I kept the tab open for too long.
