    "die of" and "die from"


    Is there any significant difference between the two phrases "die of" and "die out"?

    Thanks a lot

    Paula :)

    A person can die of pneumonia.

    Tribes, tribal customs, and populations can die out.

    Just take a look at the diferences in the results that Google gives you for the two phrases:

    die of -

    die out -

    I hope that helps.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
