    Question Has vs As

    Can you tell me which sentence is correct:

    1. I am requesting, on behalf of the Board, that you, has our Regional Member, support our cause.

    OR

    2. I am requesting, on behalf of the Board, that you, as our Regional Member, support our cause.

    Re: Has vs As

    I would use 'as'. And I would use the subjunctive 'support' instead of 'would support'.

    Re: Has vs As

    What gives you the idea that "you has" is acceptable?

    Re: Has vs As

    Who do you think "has" the regional member?

    How about "The Board is requesting that you, as our Regional Member, support our cause."

    ok, another example of Has vs As:

    Would you use 1. As I prepare
    or
    2. Has I prepare

    Re: Has vs As

    What is your native language? Your profile says "English," but that seems unlikely given your questions.

    Re: Has vs As

    Yes I am "English". However, I have always had a problem when trying to determine when to use has or as. Is there a simple rule/trick that I could use to help determine the proper use of these words. Btw, I am asking for help, because this is a forum, for asking for help! So if you don't want to help me with my questions, than just don't, but don't just reply with an insult.

    Please give complete sentences.
    'As' is very different from 'has', how can they be confusing to you, a native English speaker?
