    idioms

    Hello Teacher,

    I just want to ask are there other expresions that i can use instead of
    owing to or due to as i got bored of using them too much in my business emails so are there any alternatives ?

    thanks for your assistance

    Try,

    ...because of....
    ...caused by...
    ...on account of....

    Also,

    ...ascribable to...
    ...imputable to...
    ...referable

    1) "punctuation errors ascribable to careless proofreading";
    2) "the oversight was not imputable to him";
    3) "decide to which of these motives such extraordinary scenes are referable" Charles Dickens
