Positive adjectives and adverbs can be used for comparing. Several different grammatical structures are possible.
As … as …
This structure is used to say that people, things, actions or events are equal in a particular way.
If we want to say that people, things etc are unequal in a particular way, we can use not so … as … or not as … as …
No other as … as …
This structure can be used to compare one person or thing with the whole group that she/he/it belongs to.
As much/many … as …/as few/little … as…
This structure is used to make a comparison of quantity.
In an informal style, we use object pronouns (us, them, him etc.) after as. In a more formal style, subject pronouns are used usually with verbs.
Not as much/many … as …
This structure can be used to say that quantities are not equal in a particular way.
