USING PARALLEL STRUCTURE WITH COMPARISONS


USING PARALLEL STRUCTURE WITH COMPARISONS

Hmm… This post is also the next part of the previous post. :D Okay, let’s go to the point.

When you make a comparison, you must point out the similarities or differences between two different things, and those similarities or differences must be in parallel form. You can recognize a comparison showing how is the difference of those two things from the -er... than or the more ... than.
Look at the example below:
·         My school is farther than your school.
·         To be rich is better than to be poor.
·         What is written is more easily understood than what is spoken.
·         (same structure) (same structure)
A comparison showing the similarities or how two things are the same might contain as ... as or expressions such as the same as or similar to. Look at the examples below:
·         Jonathan’s car is as good as Nathaniel’s car.
·         Renting those apartments costs about the same as leasing them.
·         The phone that Jack brings is similar to the phone that Hannah has.
Look at the following chart:
