Hello,
e.g.1
"Death must take me for someone else."
"Death must take me as someone else."

e.g.2
"He doesn't take a joke for a joke."
"He doesn't take a joke as a joke."

In these two sets of examples, which sentence makes sense to you?

Thanks a lot!

Hello,
e.g.1
"Death must take me for someone else."
"Death must take me as someone else." This for me (AE) is questionable.

e.g.2
"He doesn't take a joke for a joke." Also questionable.
"He doesn't take a joke as a joke."

In these two sets of examples, which sentence makes sense to you?

Thanks a lot!
There may be difference of opinion.
