Hi,

Please correct the mistakes:

As from now, what I have done here, I don't do that at any places. (1)

As of now, what I have done here, I don't do anywhere (else). (Won't is better than don't)

As from tomorrow,what I'll do here, I won't do that at any places. (2)

As of tomorrow, what I'll do here, I won't do anywhere else.

If (1)and (2) are correct, what is the difference in meaning btw (1), (2) and:

As from now, what I do here, I don't do that at any places. (3)

As from now, what I do here, I don't do that at any places. (4)

Both of these last two speak of 'now', but one of the earlier ones spoke of 'tomorrow'.

In 'What I do here', the doing can be in the present or the future, not the past.

If I haven't completely answered your question, please rephrase it and ask it again.

Some context would be helpful. In what circumstances would you want to say this kind of thing?

Best wishes, Clive
Hi,

Sorry, my questions are:

1/Why did you remove that in (1) and (2)?Is it correct if I don't want remove that?

As of now, what I have done here, I won't do anywhere (else). (1)

As of tomorrow,what I have done here, I won't do anywhere (else). (2)

Is (2) correct but do I have to use I will do ?What is the difference in meaning btw them(Iwill do vs I have done) ?

2/What is the difference in meaning btw (1), (2) and:

As of now, what I do here, I won't do anywhere (else). (3)

As of tomorrow, what I do here, I won't do anywhere (else). (4)

Thanks

Q
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi,

1/Why did you remove that in (1) and (2)?Is it correct if I don't want remove that? No. You have alrteady stated the object by the 'what' noun clause.

As of now, what I have done here, I won't do anywhere (else). (1)

As of tomorrow,what I have done here, I won't do anywhere (else). (2)

Is (2) correct but do I have to use I will do ?What is the difference in meaning btw them(Iwill do vs I have done) ? If you say 'I have done', you have already done it at the time of speaking. I think you are probably thinking of what I will have done here.

If you say 'I will do', you haven't done it yet.

I think you should think about that, and then perhaps rephrase your subsequent questions. OK?

Thanks.You're welcome.Emotion: smile

Best wishes, Clive

Thanks

Q
Clive, why do you change 'As from...' to 'As of...'? In BrE, both phrases have the same meaning. Are they different in AmE?

Hi Yoong Liat

I come from the East Coast of the US and "as from" sounds like an error to me, too. I'd also use "as of".
I guess "as from" must be a British specialty. Emotion: wink
Hi,

why do you change 'As from...' to 'As of...'? In BrE, both phrases have the same meaning. Are they different in AmE?

I wouldn't say 'As from . . .' is wrong, but I rarely it. What I hear involving 'from' is simply 'From . . .' or 'Starting (from) . . .'

There's another point. With 'as of next Tuesday', I am clear that Tuesday is included. With 'as from next Tuesday', I am never sure if Tuesday is included. It probably is, but because I rarely hear it I'm not sure.

Best wishes, Clive
Yoong LiatClive, why do you change 'As from...' to 'As of...'?

In BrE, both phrases have the same meaning.

I don't think so and the dictionaries show otherwise:
-----------
from now on/as from now

from this moment and always in the future:

From now on the gates will be locked at midnight.

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=100738&dict=CALD
------------
as of

Function: preposition

: at or on (a specific time or date)<the rule takes effect as of July 1>

(23 Oct. 2006).
--------------------

Thus
as of now=the way it is now (NOT in the future)
