Because and Because of
What is the different between this two words ?
Re: Because and Because of
When you use "because", you have to use a clause after it; when you use "because of", you need to use a pronoun, a noun or a noun phrase after it. Examples:

I didn't come because of him ("him" is a pronoun.)
I didn't come because of the weather ("weather" is a noun.)
I didin't come because of his wrong information. ("his wrong information" is a noun phrase.)
Hope this helps.
