    Re: because

    Hello destesabad, welcome to Using English!

    Generally speaking, "because" presents a verb or verb phrase as a reason for something; "because of" presents a noun or noun phrase as a reason for something. Thus:

    1. Because it was raining, I went home.
    2. Because of the rain, I went home.

    All the best,

    MrP
