By Jaxson

  • Hence (adverb)

    from here, from this place, away

    “I’m going hence, because you have insulted me.”

    “Get thee hence, Satan!”

  • Hence (adverb)

    from the living or from this world

    “After a long battle, my poor daughter was taken hence.”

  • Hence (adverb)

    in the future from now

    “A year hence it will be forgotten.”

  • Hence (adverb)

    as a result; therefore, for this reason

    “I shall go to Japan and hence will not be here in time for the party.”

    “The purse is handmade and hence very expensive.”

  • Hence (interjection)

    Go away! Begone!

    “”…Hence! and bestow your dead”

    “Where no wrong against him cries!””

  • Since (adverb)

    From a specified time in the past.

    “I met him last year, but haven’t seen him since.”

  • Since (preposition)

    From: referring to a period of time ending in the present and defining it by the point in time at which it started, or the period in which its starting point occurred.

  • Since (preposition)

    Continuously during that period of time.

    “I have known her since last year.”
