As Far As Someone Knows

Can we use "As far as I"m concerned" in place of "As far as I know"? Or, are there some specific scenarquả táo where in we do not have to lớn use one in place of the other phrase?


I don"t think it should be used as a replacement.

"As far as I know" would indicate that you have partial (i.e. not complete) knowledge of the matter being discussed.

"As far as I"m concerned" would indicate you"re expressing your opinion about the matter being discussed.


They don"t mean the same thing."As far as I"m concerned" is roughly equivalent lớn "in my opinion" or "as it relates lớn me"."As far as I know" means what it says, something like "according khổng lồ my knowledge".


Both of them can"t be as a replacements.
