Can "as well as" be used with two verbs? For example the following two sentences:
1. Cows eat as well as moo.
2. Engines burn fuel as well as emit carbon dioxide.
Are the sentences written above correct?
thanks in advance.
But, now my big questions is why "burn" and "emitting" - the two verbs are not parallel at all.
I thought this was utterly wrong - burn as well as emitting
We always say: burn and emit; burn or emit; burn but emit to maintain a parallelism between the two verbs
How about "along with":
I ate along with talking. If yes, why?
and, I eat as well as talking
We don't find such things documented at one place and these come more easily to a native speaker probably :)
So, if you have an online read to suggest for such suble differences, please do. I'll be thankful.
thanks in advance
