    ... as is used here

    Hi,

    Consider the following sentence:

    The word 'conjugate' is a verb, not an adjective, as is used here.

    Two questions about this sentence:

    1. Did I correctly use the definite article at the beginning of the sentence? Should I have omitted it?

    2. I don't like the construction at the end of the sentence. Is it correct? Is there maybe a better was of saying that this word was used as an adjective here (here meaning in that particular highlighted sentence I am referring to).

    Thanks,
    nyggus

    #1. The definite article cannot be omitted.
    #2. The word 'conjugate' is a verb, not an adjective as it is here.
