From the previous thread, I understand the as...as clause.
However, from my reading, it states that the sentences contain pronoun in objective case after the second "as" is considered informal. Some books even deem it incorrect.

for example:
I am as happy as him. --> informal & some books even deem it incorrect
I am as happy as he (is). --> formal

I love you as much as her. --> informal
I love you as much as She (does). --> formal.

Therefore, how do I express the idea of
"I love you and her equally." ?

***** NOT A TEACHER *****

Good morning, Kinochima.

(1) I sincerely believe that "I love you as much as her" is NOT "informal."

(a) I believe that it means "I love you as much as (I love) her."

(2) "I love you as much as she" means (as you said): I love you as much as she (loves you).

(3) By the using correct pronoun after the second "as," you make your meaning very clear.

(4) Actually, the real problem comes with a proper noun:

I love you as much as Martha.

(a) ? as much as I love Martha.

(b) ? as much as Martha loves you.

Thank you.
