    concerned listener

    Hello! What is the correct way to use the phrase "as far as xyz is concerned"? I often hear people say, for example: "as far as his job search, he is still looking". Shouldn't it be: "as far as his job search IS CONCERNED, he is ..." Thanks!

    Re: concerned listener

    Two phraseologies are being confused and combined into some truncated version:
    ...as far as his job is concerned...

    ...as for his job,.../...as for his XXX,... /as for a/the YYY,...
