    complicated "as"

    What is the differences between 1 and 2?

    1) As has been observed by many people, "as" is one of the trickier words in the English language.

    2) As it has been observed by many people, "as" is one of the trickier words in the English language.

    It is true that "as" is one of the trickier words in the English language. With the change of position of "as" in the sentence, the meaning of sentences also changes. Please give me the links where this critical topic has been discussed.

    The meaning of that sentence is clear.

    Only if I assume that you meant to say the same thing as with the first sentence can I make sense out of that one.

    If any word changes position in a sentence, the meaning will change. Are you asking for sites that discuss 'as'?
    Try googling "as usage".
