    Re: on,of,with,by,in,for Vs as on,as of,as with,as by,as in,as for

    I have made the post a little easier to read:

    What is the difference among between these sentences expressions:

    1. on vs as on (like 'as on Friday')
    2. of vs as of (like 'as of today')
    3. with vs as with (like 'as with all subjects')
    4. by vs as by (like 'as by magic')
    5. in vs as in (like 'as in examples')
    6. for vs as for (like as for today)

    Do these phrases(as on etc) express the same meanings of the prepositions above (on etc)? Please explain these above phrases grammatically.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to here. The OP was rather poorly formatted, so 5jj tidied it up so that it was readable. So far, no-one has actually dealt with the question so can you explain how the posts have helped you to solve problems you have had for a very long time?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
