    as...as

    Hi,

    Is the below underlined phrase grammatically correct? Does it make any sense?
    Those tow "as" made me confused.

    We introduce these two variables in the regression of experienced happiness (Table 6). As the most important control
    variable we use (perceived) performance as
    we are interested in the additional impact of personal responsibility for
    these outcomes.


    Thanks.

    1. Did you mean "two" when you typed "tow"?
    2. Was there no punctuation in the original sentence?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The sentence should have included some punctuation. However, it can be read so that it makes sense.

    Replace the second "as" with its synonym "because". Does it make sense now?

    Sepmre, I'm sure you know by now that we need you to quote the source of any quote.

    It is grammatical. However, it makes no sense to me because I don't know the context.
