    Re: the difference between because, since and as(connectives)

    Welcome to the forums!

    Because
    : for the reason that
    He fell over because he caught his toe on the kerb

    Since :
    1 during or in the time after.
    He has been in town since the early morning
    2 for the reason that
    He is in town since he needs to buy some shoes

    As :
    1 used to indicate simultaneous occurrence.
    She broke the vase as she fell over
    2 in or to the same degree
    She was as cool as a cucumber
    3 because.
    The vase was smashed as Jenny knocked it over.
    4 even though
    Improbable as it seems, it's true

    I hope this makes it a little clearer!
