Beda As dan like sering membingungkan karena keduanya dapat digunakan untuk perbandingan. Namun, ada perbedaan penting, maka perhatikan penjelasan dibawah ini

1. Membuat perbandingan

as + adjective + as dan as much as

Gunakan struktur as + adjective + as or as much as untuk mengatakan apakah sesuatu memiliki atau tidak memiliki jumlah kualitas yang sama dengan sesuatu yang lain. 

Contoh:

  • She loves curry as much as I do.
  • He’s not as tall as his brother.
  • It’s not as expensive as the other hotel.
  • That dog is as big as that child!

Anda juga dapat menggunakan as pada the same as.

Contoh:

  • Your phone is the same as mine.
  • Texting is not the same as speaking in person.

like + noun

like diikuti oleh kata benda atau kata ganti untuk mengatakan bahwa dua hal serupa.

  • He’s like a father to me.
  • She’s acting like a child.
  • It’s like a burger but with big mushrooms instead of bread.
  • There are lots of people like us.

Dan biasanya untuk membuat perbandingan menggunakan like dengan verb senses (look, taste, dll)

  • She looks like her mother.
  • It sounds like a cat.
  • Nothing tastes like homemade lemonade.
  • It smells like medicine.
  • It feels like cotton.

as if/as though + clause

As if dan as though dapat digunakan untuk membandingkan situasi nyata dengan situasi imajiner. Mereka diikuti oleh klausa (subjek dan kata kerja).

  • You look as if you’ve seen a ghost.
  • I felt as if I was floating above the ground.
  • You talk as though we’re never going to see each other again.

1. Memberikan contoh

Anda dapat menggunakan like atau such as untuk memberi contoh.

Contoh:

  • You could try a team sport like football, basketball or hockey.
  • You should take something soft, such as a towel, to lie on.

2. Berbicara tentang pekerjaan atau fungsi

Anda dapat menggunakan as + noun untuk membicarakan tentang pekerjaan atau fungsi sesuatu. 

Contoh:

  • I worked as a shop assistant for two years.
  • He used his coat as a blanket to keep warm.

3. As untuk menghubungkan dua frasa

as dapat digunakan sebagai konjungsi untuk menghubungkan dua frasa dan memiliki arti yang berbeda.

as = ‘because’

  • All the tickets were sold out as we got there too late.
  • As the road was closed, I had to park on the next street.

as = ‘while’ atau ‘during the time that’

  • She called as I was getting out of the bath.
  • As they were arriving, we were leaving.

as = ‘in the way that’

  • As we expected, it started to rain.
  • As you know, classes restart on 15 January.
  • As I said, I think this project will be a challenge.

** Note: bahwa dalam pembicaraan informal, orang kadang mengatakan like seperti ‘in the way that’.
