Hi,

Action: Given that we now know MORNING LIGHT'S wartime reporting to have been accurate, his judgement on such apparently trivial matters is worth taking seriously.

What is 'given' mean in this sentence?

Thanks

Hi,

It indicates that 'we now know MORNING LIGHT'S wartime reporting to have been accurate' is an accepted fact.

Given that you love him, you should marry him.

Best wishes, Clive

I venture to suggest a synonym "in consideration of" or "in view of".

Yes; perhaps "in consideration of the fact that" or "in view of the fact that".

"Given that" is very close to "since".
