Writing tip -- like vs. as

Hi Friends,

Here is another writing tip:

Cheering you on in your work!


  1. Hi Judi, From the link above:

    As and like
    Use like before a noun, as in 'She's very like her mother'. Where a clause follows, you should use as or as if, e.g. 'He's behaving as if he owns the place' (not 'like he owns'), or 'You don't know him as I do' (not 'like I do').
