Win Win studies more seriously than Lynn Lynn. If I rewrite it as " Win Win does not study as slightly/lightly as Lynn Lynn," does it mean exactly the same as the original one? Thanks.
AFAIK you have to introduce a negative when converting.
Max can run faster than John
will be converted to
John cannot run as fast as Max
So I'd say it's legal, but instead of 'lightly/slightly', use 'casually' or 'halfheartedly'.
Win Win studies more seriously than Lynn Lynn.
Win Win doesn't study as lightly/slightly as Lynn Lynn.
Both sentencecs are different in meaning.
The former implies that both Win Winn and Lynn Lynn study seriously, but Win Win studies more seriously.
The latter indicates that both Win Win and Lynn Lynn study lightly/slightly, but Lynn Lynn studies more lightly/slightly.
However, the following sentence has the same meaning as the sentence #1.
Lynn Lynn doesn't study as seriously as Win Win.
