    Several questions about the word "as"

    I am going to the mall as I did yesterday.

    Is that a compound sentence?


    I am as tall as he is.

    Is as an adverb or an adjective?


    He's talking to me as if he doesn't know me.

    What is "as if"? Prepositional phrase?


    Thank you for answering.

    Thank you for answering.
    As if is a subordinating conjunction; it joins together the two clauses He's talking to me & he doesn't know me.

    It can thought of as a part of the second clause and referring to manner.

    In what manner was he talking to you?

    As if he didn't know me.

    I am not a teacher.
