Hi,

Could you please help me to understand the following sentences? What is referred by 'action'? What does it mean by 'continous of mone that has happend at ome time or another within the period'?

I would really appreciate examples.


Since is a preposition of time that indicates the beginning point of an action. The action can be either continuous or one that has happened at one time or another within the period.
    She's been travelling to Florida every winter since 1985.

Thank you.

Best wishes,

PBF

    She's been travelling to Florida every winter since 1985.

I've been reading since quarter of three. <--- I started, I'm reading. Continuous activity, continuous action.
I've been posting here almost every day since I joined this forum. <---- Not really continuous (I don't post all the time), but I keep on posting, when I have time.

In this sentence the action is her travels to Florida, which is not continuous, it happens only once in every year, in winter, from 1985 to the present time.

I have been in a trouble since last week.

In this sentence, the action is my being in trouble, which is continuous, that is, uninterrupted since last week.
