I want to ask what is 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
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
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
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!
