since 的用法?

我在一本書中讀到一個句子:

Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have since made good.

(許多中國家庭在多年以前移民到美國,而且經營得很成功。)

在這裡的since是什麼樣子的用法呢?

這樣的句子是不是和: ...and have made good since then. 的表達意義完全相同呢?

希望大家幫幫我解答囉! 謝謝=)

嗯! 謝謝您的解答=) 那在請問一下喔...

這三句表達方式,那一種在美國會比較常用或常見呢?

    "...and have made good since then. 的表達意義完全相同"

    你這樣認為也可以

    我認為Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have since made good.=Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have made good ever since .

    ever since在此為副詞,前句只是將ever省略而置於have之後

    無論如何,這三句意思都一樣,無差吧

    沒統計過耶

    應是Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have made good ever since.吧!

    Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have since made good.

    比較文謅謅,不會比正常的頻繁

    Correction:其實Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have since made good.=Many Chinese families emigrated to the States many years ago and have made good since.就對了

    since作這用法時與現在或過去完成式連用

    通常置於最後,形態為adv.

    例Emma went to work in New York a year ago, and we haven't seen her (ever)since.

    =Emma went to work in New York a year ago, and we since haven't seen her .

    =Emma went to work in New York a year ago, and we haven't seen her since then .

    2010-03-02 15:21:28 補充:

    Correction=>Emma went to work in New York a year ago, and we haven't since seen her .
