Push for greater integration of global economy is not, like earlier [#permalink]

I am a bit confused with that explanation.

If I understood you correctly:

John, as Louis, likes football. is correct as "Louis" is parallel to "John".

For me, it is wrong, and we should write: John, like Louis, likes football.

Is John, as Louis, likes football correct?

Thank you so much .

Hello,

So how can we know when: "[subordinate conjunction] + [not a full clause]" is correct?

Is it always ? For example, can "as" ever not be followed by a full clause ?

This is something I really struggle with, so thank in advance for you help!

A. not, like earlier, guided by complicated philosophical questions about the global fraternity, but the practical matters of business

B. being guided by the practical matters of business, instead of complicated philosophical questions about the global fraternity, as it has been earlier

C. guided not by complicated philosophical questions about the global fraternity, as earlier, but by the practical matters of business

D. guided by the practical matters of business, not complicated philosophical questions about the global fraternity, which was the case earlier

E. guided not by complicated philosophical questions about the global fraternity, as has been the case earlier, but by the practical matters of business

Hello Naptiste,

We hope this finds you well.

Having gone through the question and your query, we believe we can resolve your doubt.

As is the case with all conjunctions, the elements that coordinating conjunctions link must be parallel; thus, a subordinating conjunction can only be followed by something that is not a full clause, if it is also preceded by the same.

We hope this helps.
All the best!

Hello Naptiste,

We hope this finds you well.

To answer your question, "John, as Louis, likes football." is incorrect, but is not incorrect due to any property of coordinating conjunctions; it is incorrect because using "as" to compare nouns is unidiomatic. "as" can only compare verbs or clauses; as a coordinating conjunction, it can link two verbs/verb phrases, two independent clauses, or two dependent clauses, but it cannot link nouns.

We hope this helps.
All the best!
