WRONG:

EQUALLY AS


RIGHT:

EQUALLY, AS


It is redundant to follow “equally” with “as.” If you have written “using a tanning bed is equally as harmful as sunbathing” you should drop the “equally”: “using a tanning bed is as harmful as sunbathing.” If you’ve written “equally as delicious is their dulce de leche ice cream,” drop the “as”: “equally delicious is their dulce de leche ice cream.”
