as…as结构表示数量或程度时，可用于“as much+(不可数名词+) as”或“as many+(可数名词复数+) as”结构。
使用as…as结构时，若第一个as后的名词是单数可数名词并有形容词修饰，则应使用“as+ adj.+ a/an+ n. ”结构，即不定冠词应位于形容词和名词之间。第二个as后面的名词或代词的格不同，意思也不同。
as 常做关系代词，如such children as love their books中的as是love的主语。such books as are loved by children中的as是are loved的主语，所以要分析清楚句子结构，不可以随便删除谓语动词，如上句中的are。当as指代主句所讲述的内容时，也做关系代词。值得注意的是，as在作关系代词时，极易被误认为是连接词而加用it。
As is announced in today’s papers, all the schools will reopen on 1 September.
As it is announced in today’s papers, all the schools will reopen on 1 September.
as much/many …中as用来谈论数量。另外as much/many可作为代词，后不接名词。同时，as much …可作为副词。
I haven’t got as much money as I thought.
I ate as much as I could.
You ought to rest as much as possible.
as … as …指“两个人或物在某方面一样”，既可以用在肯定句里，也可以用在否定句中，而so … as …只能用在否定句里。“as … as …”有时含有第二个as后的主语有着高程度的那形容词（或副词）所指的特点，如上述例句中有暗指“她很老”。用isn’t，wasn’t，don’t和can’t等时，多习惯与as搭配，而不是so，如He isn’t as old as she (is)比He isn’t so old as she (is)更为普遍。若是句中的形容词或副词前用了 quite这个词时，就习惯不用as，用so。
He is as old as she (is).
He is not so old as she (is).
He isn’t quite so old as she (is).
as在表示“原因”时，语气要轻于because。一般来说，as引导的从句会在主句前。as引导的从句也可以在主句后，不过必须要确认从句的内容要是对方知道的。注意在表示原因时，不可以把as和so连用，两者只能存在一个。不过as … so …的表达方式是可以的，但指“正像……，……”。
You need not go with me, as you are busy.
I cannot go with you, as I am busy.
As you like music, so I like poetry.
as还可指“虽然”，如beautiful as she，（虽然她很漂亮）和child as he is（虽然他很孩子气）。这样用时，要注意格式上形容词或名词在as前以及名词前没有a或an；
Much as I should like to see you, I am afraid you may find it inconvenient to come in this hot weather.
Search as they would, they could find nobody in the house.
要注意区分so … as和so … that，such … as和such … that，彼此之间不可以互相替换。
Here is so big a stone as no man can lift.
Count the children as they will enter the room.
so … as to …（不定式）同…enough to …（不定式）表达的意思相同。
Write so carefully as to make every sentence clear.
The shopping center will be open to the public as from 6 May, 2001.
as well as指“（除……之外）也，又”，要注意它同and和not only … but (also)…是有区别的。A as well as B = not only B but also A，指“不单B，而且A”，注意是B在前，A在后。不可以用A，B，as well as C.通常来说，as well as作连接词，不是介词。结构“both … as well as …”是错误的，避免使用。常有人用“not only … but …as well”的结构，同“not only … but also …”或“not only … but …”表达的意思相似，但是没有后者使用普遍。
He is a Chinese, but he has foreign friends as well as Chinese friends.
I read French, German, as well as English.
He advised me as well as answering my question.
