when do we use the preposition like or as
use like or as
Use "as" before a clause and "like" when there is no clause. Examples: He looked like an elephant. He hopped as he walked down the street. He looked as if he could jump for joy. You probably see "like" used similarly as in "He looked like he could jump for joy." However, if you keep the distinction mentioned first, you won't go wrong.
