Student or Learner
I have a question.
I know <due to + noun = because of + noun = owing to + noun >
but I don't know if <due to ~ing / because of ~ing / owing to ~ing> can be used.
If they can be used, please tell me example sentences.
Thank you for your help.
2. If I used a gerund here, which is unlikely, I would put its in front of it.
3. My body is getting tan is not BrE.
Even with some re-writing, all three seem fairly unacceptable to me. At the time of writing this, I cannot think of a single example in which due to + gerund sounds natural.
Some phrases I found:
Tiredness due to walking
Fired from many jobs due to talking too much
Inability to ejaculate due to wanking excessively
Garbage problem due to killing too many pigs
They don't seem entirely unnatural to me.
I know little about Indian English which is, I agree, a recognised form of the language. You say, "This construction is widely used in Indian English." Do you mean that it is considered 'correct' by, for example, people (in India) marking examination papers in English, or just that it is widely used on the streets?
