: The exact meaning of "As if" (as a phrase in it's own right, not with anything following it) rather baffles me. Can anyone give me an explanation and examples of how it's used?

It's "Valley Girl"- as spoken by those dim and shallow but harmless California blonde teenagers, q.v.Alicia Silverstone in that great little movie, "Clueless"
