ChanteSez … Everything in due time

5 Sep

We often use the phrases “due to” and “because of” interchangeably.

But “due to” means “caused by.” With that in mind, be careful to use the phrase appropriately.

A few examples:

  • Her limp was due to a recent car accident.
  • She had a cough due to the flu.
  • Because of his friendly nature, he found it easy to meet new people.
  • His good grades were because of uninterrupted daily study.

    This article isn’t clear, Chante. You need to define it more. I personally don’t see any problem substitute any of those three phrases into any of those examples. So tell us more 🙂

      Thanks for the comment, Chris! You’re right that this isn’t so much a lesson … more my thoughts on how you can use these words. When I was writing it, I definitely thought to myself, “I’m kind of telling people they’re OK, either way.” And that is probably how it reads.
