CONJUNCTIONS. As with "seem," participles, &c.

As was used almost but not quite redundantly after "seem" (as it is still, after "regard," "represent"):

“To prey on nothing that doth seem as dead.

and even after "am:"

“I am but as a guiltless messenger.

"I am here in the character of," &c.

As is also used nearly redundantly before participles to denote a cause, "inasmuch as:"

“If he be now return'd
As checking at his voyage.
