    Default as usage

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-I would like to face him in battle and break my lance between his ribs, as he did to my father.
    (non-restrictive:I would like to commit the same act towards him that he committed towards my father.
    2-I would like to face him in battle and break my lance between his ribs as he did to my father.
    (restrictive: In the same manner.)

    navi tasan,
    That's a keen analysis. You could also substitute "which" for "as" in sentence number 1). A plus.
