Learning a language is fun, but it requires a lot of practicing and patience. Improving one’s vocabulary is a continuous process. Drawing comparisons is a part of learning a language, and English is no exception to it. There are certain rules that help learners to make comparisons in English.
We can use words like ‘than,’ ‘as,’ ‘more,’ etc. to make comparisons in spoken or written communications. Prepositions such as ‘like’ and ‘as’ are also used to indicate a comparison. These words are generally used before a noun or pronoun to say that the two things are similar. For example, Jane runs like a hare. Another example is, Alex is respected as a doctor. Comparisons can be drawn by using word ‘as’ in the following manner as well: as cheerful as a lark; or as fresh as a rose.
