I would like know are there other words to express thing's equality rather than "wie". Following are translated like in examples but in some "wie" is missing, are there other comperative words like in English.
Quiet as a mouse=> Mäuschenstill
like a duck out of water => wie eine Ente ausser dem Wasser
good as gold =>gut wie Gold
old as the hills=>steinalt
For example how could I say "gut wie Gold" in another words, I actually want to use a comperative word like "wie" or something else?
