How to use "because of"

6/19
Recursos

Empezaremos este nuevo m√≥dulo con la expresi√≥n ‚Äúbecause of‚ÄĚ (debido a) que es una preposici√≥n y por lo general acompa√Īa un sustantivo o pronombre.

Diferencias entre because y because of

Ambas preposiciones, ‚Äúbecause of‚ÄĚ y ‚Äúbecause‚ÄĚ nos ayudan a conectar ideas entre s√≠ de una u otra forma, pero las seguimos usando de manera distinta.

Because of

Usamos because of cuando queremos introducir una causa o razón que explique la primera oración, es decir, que nos de la razón del porqué ocurrió. La composición que usamos es la siguiente:

Primera oración + because of + sustantivo o pronombre

Por ejemplo:

  1. I got the job because of her. / Conseguí el trabajo gracias a ella.
    Como observamos, aquí empleamos el pronombre objeto (her) y no el pronombre personal (she).
  2. We couldn’t go because of the rain. / No pudimos ir debido a la lluvia.

Because

Because es una conjunción que conecta dos ideas completas que, si se desea, pueden ser oraciones independientes. Su traducción más directa es porque. La composición que usamos es la siguiente:

Primera oración + because + segunda oración

  1. I got the job because she helped me. / Conseguí el trabajo porque ella me ayudó.
  2. We couldn’t go because it was raining. / No pudimos ir porque estaba lloviendo.

En resumen, because of √ļnicamente introduce la causa, mientras que because tambi√©n introduce una causa y adem√°s conecta dos oraciones completas.

Ejemplo de usos

Correctos:

  • I got the job because she helped me.
  • I got the job because of her.
  • We couldn‚Äôt go because it was raining.
  • We couldn‚Äôt go because of the rain.

Incorrectos:

  • I got the job because of she helped me. (she helped me es una oraci√≥n completa, ‚Äúof‚ÄĚ sobra)
  • I got the job because her. (because conecta ideas completas, ‚Äúher‚ÄĚ no lo es)
  • We couldn‚Äôt go because of it was raining.
  • We couldn‚Äôt go because the rain.
