    since I've known you, since I know you

    I read the sentence 'I've never heard Ken criticize anyone since I've known her' from Martin Hewing's ADVANCED GRAMMAR IN USE (2004 edition) CD ROM.

    My questions are:
    1. Could we say 'I've never heard Ken criticized anyone since I know him' like in the expression 'since I can remember'?
    2. And does 'since I've known her' sound better than 'since I got to know him'?
    I was hoping native English teachers could help me with these questions.
    Thank you very much.

    Re: since I've known you, since I know you

    Are you sure this is right?

    It looks as though it ought to read:

    I've never heard Ken criticize anyone since I've known him.

    The answers to your questions:

    #1 No, you can't.

    #2 Yes, it does.
