This is part two of our post on Like vs. Like. As we mentioned in our last post, the word like can have many different meanings and cause a lot of confusions to a person first learning English. Here are some other ways we can use like.
We can use the word like in comparisons. For example:
He is as tall as mike = He is tall like mike
We can also use the word like as Role indicators. An example would be:
They fell on the supplies as men starving = They fell on the supplies like starving men.
And finally, we can use the word like to show enjoyment.
I like rock music.
Here are two different ways of using like using the example of ice-cream.
I like ice-cream (I enjoy eating ice-cream because it taste good or because it is sweet and cold).
Ice-cream is like snow (I can compare ice-cream with snow because ice-cream and snow are both cold).
We hope this makes understanding the differences between some of the different words like.
