Hi,

Consider the following sentence:

The word 'conjugate' is a verb, not an adjective, as is used here.​

Two questions about this sentence:

1. Did I correctly use the definite article at the beginning of the sentence? Should I have omitted it?

2. I don't like the construction at the end of the sentence. Is it correct? Is there maybe a better was of saying that this word was used as an adjective here (here meaning in that particular highlighted sentence I am referring to).

Thanks,
nyggus

#1. The definite article cannot be omitted.
#2. The word 'conjugate' is a verb, not an adjective as it is here.
