While studying English I found this website about “Common English mistakes” from somebody`s website on the internet which does not include any grammar explanations/an English grammar link as of why this should be the case.
I am again here asking for help :0)
There are two “wrong” sentences, which examples include the words “reason” and “because” shown as wrong and honestly I use them myself in the same way. If someone could please help me out by including a grammar point of view and/or suggest me a useful link that might bring me grammar light on this subject, I will appreciated it.
- “reason” … “because” is not correct. Say “reason” … “that”
Wrong : The “reason” I came late was “because” I overslept…
Right : The “reason” I came late was “that” I overslept.
Wrong : The “reason” that he makes poor grades is “because” of his poor study habits.
Right : The reason that ( or why ) he makes poor grades is his poor study habits.
God Bless you all.
