I am an advanced english estudent and interesting in grammar, I have good knowlodge of the use of as well and as well as, but I have a great confusion in unsing just as well and its meaning.
1) Please, I need a good and convincing explanation of its meaning. How "convincing" must it be for you?
2) I also need to know when I have to use it and its grammar rule. I don't know if there is any particular "grammar rule".
3) I would like those who give explanations about this topic, please write some examples and sentences as well.
Examples: (A) "Grammarfreak failed his driver test today". (B) "Oh yeah? It's just as well , because I think he needs more practice". (i.e. I'm not surprised/I agree)
(A) "What's wrong with you today?" (B) "I don't know. I've made so many mistakes. I might just as well have stayed home today." (i.e. instead of coming to work, I should have stayed home)
I would appreciate your assistance in this matter.
Now I just understood the use of that idiomatic expression and the examples that Billmcd gave me, I was trying to see the book A comprehensive Grammar of the English Language online to no avail, but as soon as I can afford, I will buy it, I think is the one I need for my grammar studies.
James I would also like to see your threads, you are good at giving explanations.
Hoping to keep in touch with you.
