As + Pronoun + Verb? Hi everybody, I just saw this text "The beer warms a bit as you pound the remote control", what does ".As you pound.." mean? Is there any rule about using (As + pronoun + verb)? Thanks in advance!

Patrick is right - "as" means "while" in this context. Please don't think they are always synonyms, as "as" can mean "because", as well as other meanings unrelated to "while". "As" is one of these very flexible words we have in English. :)

Thanks I got the meaning. Is there a rule about using "As" as "when/while" or they are synonyms?
