    Default "die of" and "die from"

    Hi,

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

    Thanks a lot

    regards
    Paula :)

    Yes

    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 - http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...q=%22die+of%22

    die out - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...=%22die+out%22

    I hope that helps.
