    regard?

    I wonder if adjective can be followed after as as a complement. for example,

    I regard her as dishonest.( or I regard her as being dishonest? which one sounds better? or do you have any other suggestion??)
    I know her as dishonest
    I characterize her as dishonest.

    looking forward to seeing your answers. Thanks in advance!

    Re: regard?

    To me.... "I regard her as being dishonest" sounds better.

    Also instead of saying...

    I know her as dishonest
    I characterize her as dishonest.

    I would be more inclined to say...

    I know her to be dishonest.
    I would characterize her as being dishonest.

    I hope this helps
