As Far As

As Far As :

Originally people used to say things like “As far as music is concerned, I especially love Baroque opera.

Recently they have begun to drop the “is concerned” part of the phrase. Perhaps this shift was influenced by confusion with a similar phrase, “as for.”

“As for money, I don’t have any,” is fine.

“As far as money, I don’t have any,” is clumsy.
