Because (examples, how to use)

We can use because to give a reason for something:

I ate a lot because I was hungry.

We can use because in an answer to a why-question:

Why are you going to bed so early? ~ Because I’m tired.
Because comes before a subject + verb. We DON’T use because before a noun:

Mark married Sara because he loves her. (subject = he, verb = loves)

We were late because the weather was bad. (subject = the weather, verb = was)
because the bad weather
The because-clause can come first or second in the sentence:

I ate a lot because I was hungry.
Because I was hungry, I ate a lot.
We can begin an answer with because + subject + verb:

Why are you late? ~ Because the traffic was very bad.
