    Talking 209-inasmuchas

    Hello all

    What is the meaning and use of (inasmuch as)?
    I need some examples, too, and the correct pronunciation.

    Thanks in advance

    There are two basic meanings:

    1) "Since..." or "Considering that...". For example: "I assumed you didn't like me, inasmuch as you never talked to me."

    2) "To the same degree that...". For example: "Inasmuch as you failed to provide help to my friends, you failed to provide help to me."

    The pronunciation is exactly the same as the constituent words 'in', 'as' and 'much', but said together quickly.
