In one of previous articles we have already examined the degrees of comparison of adjectives, the rules of their formation, as well as exceptions. However, the comparison does not always take place in one direction or another (more - less, more interesting - less interesting, etc.). Sometimes we want to say that the objects are just the same or not the same, or to emphasize how great the difference between them is.
All this can be done using the following constructions:
He is as old as I am.
It is not as so/as beautiful as it used to be.
This dress is twice as expensive as it is on the website.
Her car is the same colour as mine.
The least + adjective … of/in
Why is this car less expensive than that one?
His las novel is the least interesting of all previous ones.
The earlier you get up, the more you will manage to do.
It is autumn. The temperature is getting lower and lower.
Special attention should be paid to the use of words like and as. Their meaning is different and the misuse of one of them in a sentence can lead to misunderstanding.
The word Like is used:
No one understands me like you.
There is no place like home.
The word AS is used:
She works as a doctor. (She IS a doctor.)
He played well as an antagonist. (He did play an antagonist.)
He is the same as we remember him.
This herb is used as a medicine in many cultures.
Do as they tell you.
