Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera

Penggunaan ‘like’ and ‘as’

Both of these can be used to talk about things which are similar. The rules about their use are quite clear but, as we will see later, in informal modern English
the rules appear to be changing.

‘Like’ dan ‘as’ digunakan untuk menerangkan tentang perkara/benda2 yang sama. Cara dan peraturan menggunakan nya adalah sama tapi jika kita dilihat dalam contoh dibawah penggunaannya dalam zaman sekarang telah berubah.


‘like’ is a preposition and is followed by a noun or a pronoun

‘like’ ialah satu kata sendi nama dan diikuti oleh noun (kata nama) atau pronoun (kata ganti nama )

–I look like my father.

–It’s not like him to be late.


‘as’ is a conjunction and is used before a clause

‘as’ ialah satu kata penghubung (penyambung ayat) dan
diguna sebelum satu frasa.

–My son is a good tennis player, as I was when I was
young.

–Oliver died as he lived, drunk.


‘as’ is also used before prepositional expressions

‘as’ juga diguna sebelum ekspresi prepositional

–In Paris, as in Berlin, the bankers are worried
about the state of the Euro.

–Today, as in the 1960’s, London is very fashionable.

In more formal English, we often invert the word-order
after ‘as’

Dalam BI yg formal,susunan ayat akan diterbalikkan selapas penggunaan ‘as’

–I’m good at playing golf, as is my son.

–He went to Cambridge University, as did his father.

We also use ‘as’ with jobs, roles and functions

‘As’ juga digunakan untuk menunjukkan jawatan,tanggungjawab dan fungsi

–I got a Summer job as a waiter.

–He uses my house as his own.

In modern informal American and British English, some people sometimes use ‘like’ as a conjunction in the place of ‘as’ .

Kadang2 ‘like’ juga digunakan sebagai conjunction sebagai mengganti ‘as’

–You don’t love her like I do.

They also use ‘like’ to mean ‘as if’

–He treats my house like it was his.

These are both considered ‘incorrect’ by many people but they are becoming so frequently used that it seems to me that the grammar rules are changing.
