The use of the prepositions 'since' and 'for'.
The above two prepositions are quite difficult because we often use them incorrectly.
' since ' is used with point of time .
' for ' is always used with period of time.
Hence ' since ' is used in instances such as these:
since Monday, since 1999, since January, since morning, since 10am etc.
On the other hand ' for ' is used in instances such as:
for two days, for three hours, for ten years, for five months etc.
It would be erroneous to say
For e.g. :
He has been ill for
