equally, equally as, just as
Equally as is non-standard English because the preposition as is unnecessary after the adverb equally.
- Her photographs and her sister’s are equally good (not equally as good).
- This map is more colourful, but the old one is equally accurate.
The phrase just as may often be substituted for equally.
- This map is more colourful, but the old one is just as accurate.
