Can I use "as well as" in negatif form? The job was dangerous as well as exhausting. The job was not dangerous as well as not exhausting.

A much more natural way to say this is "The job was neither dangerous nor exhausting." Keeping a closer structure to your sentence, you could also write "The job was not dangerous and nor was it exhausting." But using 'as well as' sounds strange.

You can't use a double negative in the same sentence. I think the construction "neither....or....." works better here. The job was neither dangerous nor exhausting. or you can say, The job wasn't dangerous, nor was it exhausting.

You cant use the verb '' as well as'' .here. You could say like this. '' The job wasn't dangerous, it isn't exhausting either. ''
