as and like
Which one should I choose?
The first thing to know is that:
as = conjunction or preposition
like = verb (to express a preference) or preposition
So, think about the context … look at the meaning and the words that come before and after as and like – then decide whether you need to use a verb, a conjunction or a preposition …
The sentences below are examples of non-standard usage. Can you explain why?
My uncle can plaster a wall
like he’s a real plasterer.
My friends are working hard for their exams,
like they did last year.
