Pada dasarnya, ‘because, because of, due to, since, & as’ digunakan sebagai penghubung (conjunction) dalam kalimat sebab-akibat, berarti karena.

‘Because’ digunakan u/ menghubungkan induk kalimat & anak kalimat sehingga biasanya setelah penggunaan ‘because’ diikuti o/ klausa (terdiri dari S & V).

‘Because’ juga digunakan ketika ingin menekankan pada sebab sesuatu terjadi, biasanya penyebab tersebut merupakan informasi baru, belum diketahui banyak orang.

Contoh: He blushed because he knew he had been caught out.

Penggunaan ‘because’ dan ‘for’ memiliki maksud yang sama. Akan tetapi ‘because’ bersifat lebih formal daripada ‘for’. ‘For’ tidak pernah digunakan di awal kalimat.


Sementara itu ‘since’ & ‘as’ digunakan jika penyebab sesuatu terjadi tersebut tidak begitu penting atau sudah diketahui banyak orang.

Contoh: As it is raining again, we have to stay at home for a while. Since it is raining again, we have tp stay at home for a while.


‘Because of’ & ‘due to’ biasanya diikuti oleh kata benda, berbeda dengan ‘because’ yang harus diikuti klausa yang terdiri dari S & V.

‘Because of’ menerangkan kata kerja, sedangkan ‘due to’ menerangkan kata benda dan biasanya diikuti oleh verb to be (is,am, are, was, were).

Contoh: - I lost my appetite because of a stomachache. - My loss of appetite was due to a stomachache.
