Could you please tell me which of these two sentences is correct and which is not: "Or should I call you a thief for stealing my wallet?" or "Or should I call you a thief because you have stolen my wallet? And if both of them are correct could you explain the difference.
They're both correct and mean the same thing. The first version sounds more natural to my American ears.
I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
