LIKE and AS

LIKE and AS


                       
                       
  Like = similar to / the same as  / for example :  
                       
  What a beautiful house. It 's like a palace    
  [ not as a palace ]              
                       
  Why do you always talk about boring things  like your
  job.                    
                       
  What does George do ? He is a teacher, like me.  
  [ not as me ]                
                       
  Be careful . The floor was just waxed. It is like walking
  on ice.                  
                       
  It's raining again. I hate weather like this.    
                       
  Note "like"  is always followed by noun, pronoun, gerund  
  , noun phrase.              
                       
                       
  We use "as" before a subject + verb      
                       
  Don't move anything. Leave everything as it is.  
  You should have done it as I showed you.    
                       
  but we use  such as [ = for example ]  without verb :  
                       
  Some sports, such as auto racing, can be dangerous.
                       
  Note that we say as usual :          
                       
  You're late as usual.            
                       
  As + Subject + Verb can have other meanings.   
  For example :                
  Do as you are told. [ Do what you are told. ]   
  They did as they promised. [ They did what they promised.]
                       
  You can say  as you know, as we expected / as I said /  
  as I thought, etc :              
                       
  As you know, it's Tom's birthday next week.  
  Ann failed her driving test, as we expected.    
                       
  As can also be a preposition [ it means  you can use it   
  with a noun ] but the meaning is different from like :  
                       
  We use like when we compare things :    
                       
  She looks beautiful - like a princess. [ She is not really
  a princess. ]                
                       
  Everyone is sick at home. Our house is like a hospital.
  [ it isn't really a hospital ]          
                       
  We use as + noun to say what something really is   
  or was [ when we talk about someone's job or how we  
  use something. ]              
                       
  A few years ago I worked as a waiter.[ sebagai ]  
  Sue has just found a job as a teacher.[ sebagai ]  
  During the war this hotel was used as a hospital.
  [ it is really a hospital ] [ sebagai ]      
  We don't have a car so we use the garage as a class.
  [ sebagai ]                
  The news of her death came as a great shock. [ it really
  a shock ] [ sebagai ]
