    Default as well as

    i faced a problem in writing "as well as" in my composition.
    i wonder if i should put gerund after it or not.

    it is used as a conjunction...but because it is ended with "as",sth like a preposition... so,if i am referring to a present tense before it, should i keep the present tense after it ,or change the verb after it into a gerund???

    First, what's your sentence? Second, conjunctions join two like units:

    running as well as walking
    run as well as walk
    ran as well as walked

    run as well as walking (Not OK)
    ran as well as as walk (Not OK)
