    Hi,

    Please, is this use of 'as' correct?


    As she was listening to the radio, he knocked at the door.

    Yes.

    Also, "subordinator" sounds like some kind of super villain. (He was once a mild-mannered grammarian, before genetically altered vegetables twisted him into the criminal mastermind known only as 'The Subordinator'!!!)

    I would use "while" in that sentence.
