Grammar Repair Shop: Ways to say 'because'

“Because,” “due to,” “since”—which one is the right one to use? Use "because" instead of wordier options, such as “owing to the fact that” or “on the grounds that.” You could also use it instead of the persnickety “due to.” Example: “It was canceled because of illness.” "Since" often means the same thing as “because.”
