Emotion: smileHi, everyone

In this sentence:

I have known her since 1994.

Can it be rephrased as " I knew her from 1994." ? Has the meaning changed?

There's another sentence:

From the moment he saw her, he loved her.

Can it be rephrased as " Since the moment he saw her, he had loved her." ? Has the meaning changed?

I'd appreciate it if you can solve my doubt.Emotion: pizza

Use "since" when you're indicating the beginning of the time period (it refers to the starting point):
I have known her since 1990.
We haven't seen them since June.
She has been there since eight o'clock.

Use "for" when you're talking about a period of time (up to the present):
I have known her for 17 years.
We haven't seen them for 3 months.
She has been there for 5 hours.

I hope it's clear enough Emotion: smile

Hi,

eg I have been calling you for 15 days.
eg I have been calling you for the last two weeks.

Make sure that you include what you think is the right level of politeness.Emotion: smile

I have been calling you for 15 days, since the 1st day you aren't picking my call.
That's not good English.
Say eg I have been calling you for 15days, but you haven/t returned any of my calls.
