"I haven't eaten in six hours."-- You have not eaten in six hours. "I haven't eaten in the last six hours."-- You have not eaten in the previous, last six hours.

A. I haven't eaten for six hours vs I haven't eaten in the last six hours. (The meaning, as mentioned, is about the same,) I have eaten for two hours. What does it mean? (Strictly speaking, it means that you been eating for two hours. You must be famished,)
Answer #4 | 27/12 2013 17:26
each is interchangeable. the second sentence means you've been eating for the past two hours straight.
Answer #5 | 27/12 2013 20:24
I have not eaten in the last six hours is a simple statement of fact. Loosely speaking the more idiomatic, "I have not eaten for six hours" says the same but with emphasis on the amount of time, or longer, that has transpired, without eating, in which hunger has presently begun to grow. The former says that its speaker has accomplished a feat of refraining from food. The latter says that its speaker wants to eat again, the sooner the better.
