Comparative: As … AS

Start here

Di dalam bahasa Inggris, kita mengenal adanya comparative as … as.  As …. As digunakan untuk:
  1. Membandingkan hal yang setara.
  2. Menunjukan sebuah jumlah yang ekstrim.
 A. Membandingkan hal yang setara
Contoh:
Rina is as tall as Tono. (Rina setinggi  Tono.)
I am as handsome as you. (Saya setampan kamu.)
They are as short as their mother. (Mereka sependek ibu mereka.)
Rumus:
As + Adjective +  as
Contoh lain:
I can run as fast as you. (Saya bisa berlari secepat kamu.)
Jenita  sings as good as Isabel. ( Jenita bernyanyi sebagus Isabel.)
As … as bisa juga dipakai dalam kalimat negative dan juga introgatif.
Contoh:
I cannot run as fast as you. (Saya tidak bisa berlari secepat kamu.)
Rina isn’t as beautiful as Jenita. (Rina tidak secantik Jenita.)
Is Rina as beautiful as Jenita? (Apakah Rina secantik Jenita?)
Can you run as fast as me? (Bisakah kamu berlari secepat saya?)
B. Menunjukan sebuah Jumlah Yang Ekstrim
Maksud dari menunjukan sebuah jumlah yang ekstrim disini adalah penekanan pada adjectivenya.
