BECAUSE + CLAUSE We moved to another city because my father got a new job. BECAUSE OF + NOUN We moved to another city because of my father's new job. As / since = as, since. - As it is your birthday, I'll lend you my best clothes. Usually they go to the beginning of the sentence Other causal links: due to, owing to = due to
