use of the word 'been'
'He is still the type of person he's been years ago'
Is this proper use of the word?
Sorry, but this isn't the best usage for the word 'been'. You may want to consider this alternative:
"He is still the same person that he was years ago."
"He is still the same type of person that he was years ago."
You may also want to explain in better detail exactly what 'type' of person that he has been in his lifetime. For example, "he is still the loving and generous person that he has always been."
I hope this helps!
