    Re: "as --- as"

    Antonio

    The fomrula is:

    as big as
    as small as

    etc..

    In other words:
    as + adjective + as

    Consider the following sentence:

    The Mercedes is as beautiful as the Mazda.

    Here what we want to say is that:

    The Mercedes is beautiful, and the Mazda is also beautiful.

    We wanted to say that the Merecedes and the Mazda are the same in "Beauty".

    Another example:

    The Toshiba costs US$ 3000. The Dell costs US$ 3000.

    We say: The Toshiba is as expensive as the Dell.

    As---as Expression in the Negative
    ------------------------------------

    Example:

    The village is clean. The town is not very clean.

    We say:
    The village is cleaner than the town.

    This expression can also be expressed as follows:

    The town is not as clean as the village.
