    Question has since been or ever since

    Here's a new one:

    Which is correct?


    ... she has since been a member of the Welk family.

    or

    ... she has been a member of the Welk family ever since.


    Thank you in advance.

    Re: has since been or ever since

    Hi,

    I believe these are both correct - the difference is that "since" could mean a single ocurrence which has not continued e.g.

    "She said she wouldn't go abroad again, but has since visited Australia"

    whereas "ever since" implies a continuing state of affairs i.e.

    "She went to Australia two years ago, and has lived there ever since"

    Hope this helps

    Mike
