    Re: becuase or because of

    After "because" is a clause:

    eg: Because his leg has been broken, he can't walk.

    After "because of" is a phrase:

    eg: Because of his broken leg, he can't walk.

    I think 'because' can also be used in sentences which has no clauses.
    For e.g.
    A: "Why didn't you come to school that day?"
    B: "Because I was having headache".
