    can we use "and because" together?

    Hi,

    It's correct to use "and because" together in a sentence.

    For example:

    XXX XXX XXX and because XXX XXX XXX.

    Thanks in advance.

    I imagine you can always come up with a specific context to make it work, but out of hand, I would say that "and as" is a better alternative.

    I think "off hand" would work better in your sentence than "out of hand".
    :wink:

    Some examples:

    I have always been an avid reader, and because of this, my vocabulary is quite large.

    I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you
    hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies.

    I am because we are, and because we are, I am.
