b.Can "as well as" be used with two verbs? For example the following two sentences:
1. Cows eat as well as moo.
2. Engines burn fuel as well as emit carbon dioxide.
Are the sentences written above correct? Well, I'll give you a qualified "yes" on both, but in #1, I have never known a cow to eat "as well as". Even though I understand the sentence, it sounds unnatural to me. But use, or overuse, of the prepositional phrase, "as well as" is one of my personal pet peeves, partiularly when used by TV broadcasters, and especially when a simple "and" would suffice.
thanks in advance.
