For jika diikuti proper noun (nama/kata ganti orang dan benda) akan memiliki arti untuk.

Contoh:

  • I bought these flowers for her.

For jika diikuti suatu periode waktu (jumlah waktu) akan memiliki arti selama.

Contoh:

  • I have been teaching in STKIP Sembrani for ten years.
  • Ratu was going away for a week in July.
  • Dodo has been suffering from running ear for fifteen years.

Since sebagai preposisi memiliki arti sejak. Preposisi ini harus diikuti nama waktu atau keterangan waktu—bukan jumlah/periode waktu seperti for.

Contoh:

  • I have been teaching in STKIP Sembrani since ten years ago.
  • Ratu was going away since last week in July.
  • Dodo has been suffering from running ear since he was born.
