I often run across sentences (not so frequently here, but much so elsewhere) that begin with the phrase "As such".
But the phrase has no meaning for me. Perhaps it's just not part of my particular regional vocabulary.
It always seems to me, when I see it, that the phrase could be omitted without affecting the sense of the sentence at all.
Am I missing something?
(I'm asking this question on this forum because I know it has many posters who understand English writing style very well.)
