Women were considered as inferior to men (Why is as not necessary after consider?) Can you give a list of verbs followed by "as"? Thank you.

  1. Start with a GOOD definition: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/as (Read ALL the different definitions here and the examples given.)

    From my memory, these are some verbs that take "as" after them:
    perceived
    thought of
    write
    see

    Without "as":
    consider

    (You should make your own lists and add to them whenever you run across these combinations -- or when the combination won't work.)

    As I've written before, some of these things cannot be explained. There doesn't seem to be any logic involved ... simply usage over a long period of time. That's how idioms and phrasal verbs, etc., come to be. I'll put some more links below for you to add to the phrasal verbs link I gave you yesterday.

    In this website, using the Index is the easiest way to find specific grammatical and/or usage topics.

  2. Here's another really interesting website -- a blog, actually:

    There are LOTS of useful links and resources in the lists at the right.

    Happy exploring!
