Hi,

Please help me to use the word or phrases correctly. They are 'think' and 'think of'. Can you check the sentences/examples of mine?

1. I think the car as being marvelous. (Not correct, I think)

2. I think of the car as being marvelous. (Correct, I think)

3. I think it as modern and upscale. (Not correct)

4. I think of it as modern and upscale. (Correct)

5. I think him as gentle and upright. (Not correct)

6. I think of him as gentle and upright. (correct)

7. I think him as a righteous person. (Not correct??)

8. I think of him as a righteous person. (Correct??)

Do you have some tips for me to see better?

You have found the correct and incorrect sentences ok.

Of course, it would be simpler to say

I think the car is marvellous.
I think it is modern and (upscale - not a word!)
I think he is gentle and upright.
I think he is a righteous person.

Nona,

Just a point of interest to all the lands which may be flying the "Union Jack".Emotion: big smile

Upscale- not only has it been abusively used but also adapted as a popular adjective and a verb.
Oh, ok, sorry. What does it mean? Upmarket?

I can see upscale being used in the sense of 'make larger/scale up'...but that doesn't make sense here.
