| | Present perfect or present perfect continuous
Hi everyone, I found some sentences in a textbook about present perfect & present perfect continuous. The textbook uses since, for and how long with action verbs to refer to the present perfect continuous. It uses them only with state verbs to refer to the present perfect simple. But I found some action verbs with "since" to refer to the present perfect simple. Here are two of them:
1.She hasn't eaten there since June.
2.He hasn't spoken to me since Christmas.
Q: Can the verb 'speak' and ' eat' sometimes be stative ? Or Can 'since' come with the action verbs to refer to the present perfect simple?
