    as ⁄ like I said

    Comment
    Wann sagt man "as I said", wann "like I said"?

    Ist es ähnlich der deutschen "als⁄wie" Verwirrung?

    Konnte unter der Suchfunktion irgendwie nichts zum Thema "as vs. like" finden. Kann mir eigentlich nicht vorstellen, daß das hier noch nie vorkam.

    I'm sure it's come up several times, but that's one of the flaws in the LEO search algorithm (or server/processor capacity): the search excludes very short words like 'as.' If you would like to add your voice to the many users who long for an improvement in that respect, you could mention it to the LEO team under Re: LEO, but they don't seem to have been able to do anything about it in all the years we've been asking.

    The short answer is that 'as' is correct in standard English, but 'like' is also widely used colloquially.

    OT:

    How did you make that unusual slash character? It looks like the middle part of a percent sign or fraction and shows up in the HTML as [ampersand]#x2044[semicolon]. What does that do?

    It seems to be a normal slash character, but somehow it contracts the spaces around it and looks weird :-)

    Danke! Wie immer erschöpfend beantwortet.

    Ja, und auch beim ⁄ muß man Variationsmöglichkeiten haben, immer derselbe / wäre ja langweilig. Kommt drauf an, wie schräg es gerade läuft ;-)

    ⁄ is the unicode FRACTION SLASH character:

    One can also use ⁄ in HTML to get the same character.
    Best kept for actually writing fractions though.
