Hi
Similarly to other neo-Gricean conceptions, however, Attardo’s theory has its own drawbacks.

Do you have any problem with the sentence?

Yes, you are right Peter, it was another member who asked another thing about the same sentence. As for your question, I like "similarly to" more than "similar to" in that example, but that's just my preference, maybe.
Peter? Why not George?

'Similarly to' is much less frequently used than 'similar to', but thanks Koyeen. Can I call you Giuseppe? Emotion: wink

I thought your name was Peter. Nope, mine is not Giuseppe, lol.
After checking on the net, it seems "similarly to" is not wrong. I also found a thread here on EF:

However, if you google "similarly to", the first two results come from threads on ESL forums (and one of them is EF). This is what I call "highly suspicious results when googling". It's not a good sign (on google.com and with cookies disabled to do neutral searches). Maybe it's just not common enough. No idea. [:^)]
