    "from" and time

    Can I use "from" in expressions that concern determining time like for example:
    a) from this moment
    b) from that occurence
    c) from his arrival
    d) from last summer
    e) from that day
    f) from Monday
    ?

    Re: "from" and time

    Probably. Try putting one or two of them in full sentences for a start.

    Re: "from" and time

    They all seem to sound good. If i take for example senetence "I haven't seen him .... { a) or b) or c) or ...} ....." is it ok?

    No. You need "since" instead of "from".

    Could you please rephrase your question? It's very difficult to understand exactly what you are asking.

    e) from that day on...
    f) from Monday to Friday...
