    Re: Grammar

    When the [something does something], the [something/something else does something else] is a probably cause and effect.

    When the button is pressed, the alarm will sound.

    But I'm not sure I understood your question. Can you clarify at all?

    In language cause and effect is shown with help of certain expressions:
    cause: This was caused by
    Lead to: It leads to..

    Result in/from
    and a variety of other expressions......

    See the following link:
