English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. because

    Because, literally by-cause, is the most direct and complete word for giving the reason of a thing. Since, originally denoting succession in time, signifies a succession in a chain of reasoning, a natural inference or result. As indicates something like, coordinate, parallel. Since is weaker than because; as is weaker than since; either may introduce the reason before the main statement; thus, since or as you are going, I will accompany you. Often the weaker word is the more courteous, implying less constraint; for example, as you request it, I will come, rather than I will come because you request it. Inasmuch as is a formal and qualified expression, implying by just so much, and no more; thus, inasmuch as the debtor has no property, I abandon the claim. For is a loose connective, giving often mere suggestion or indication rather than reason or cause; as, it is morning, for (not because) the birds are singing.

How to use because in a sentence?

  1. Erin Haney:

    I think Kim and her team would be the first to say she does, of course, have a lot of help, and that's essential, i think when she first announced that she was doing this, there were some people who felt some level of inequity. One of the things that Kim has talked about a lot is that she is consistently, incredibly impressed by people who were able to study law, make it through the bar, be a parent, all of these things because it is just so incredibly hard.

  2. Dave Nagle:

    I think she's right where she should be, i think she's got great potential.

  3. Marcus Boyd:

    I commend General Motors leadership for coming to Toledo Powertrain today. The workers deserve that. My questions are : Why did it go this far ? Why did it take multiple incidents over years before it was addressed ? why did I have to leave my career because [ of ] the racial hostility in the work environment ? Why wasn't it taken seriously when these incidents were reported over and over again ? Diversity and inclusiveness should be more than a general statement.

    The model is broken because of the conflict of interest.

  5. Angela Merkel:
