- Before now; ago: with an adverbial phrase specifying the amount of time separating the event or time in question from the present: as, many years since; not long since.

- When: after verbs noting knowledge or recollection.
- As a sequel or consequence of the fact that; inasmuch as; because.
- Synonyms Because, Since, As, Inasmuch as, For. Because (originally
by cause) is strong and the most direct. Since, starting from the idea of mere sequence in time, is naturally less emphatic as to causation: its clause more often precedes the main proposition. As is still weaker, and, like since, generally brings in the reason before the main proposition: as or since the mountain will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain. Inasmuch as is the most formal and emphatic, being used only to mark the express reason or condition. For follows the main proposition, and generally introduces that which is really continuative of the main proposition and of equal or nearly equal importance, the idea of giving a reason being subordinate.

And as it was our first appearance at church since -- well, _since_ -- perhaps there was just a little consciousness of our relations that made Bessie seem to retire absolutely within herself, and be no more a part of the silken crowd than was the grave, plain man who rose up in the pulpit.
Mr. Brayley, in his _Londiniana_, wrote about five years since that "if due care be taken when the old bridge is pulled down, the bones and ashes of its venerable architect may still be found;" -- and, true enough, _the bones of old Peter were found on removing the pier about a fortnight since_.
