Can a sentence start with because?
It’s a good question.
And it deserves a clear and well-considered answer.
If you’re like many of us, your elementary school grammar teachers taught you never to start a sentence with a conjunction.
Starting a sentence with because comes second nature in everyday speech and informal writing.
It’s less common in more formal writing, but that doesn’t make it wrong.
So, how do you do this the right way?
And is there a wrong way you should know about?
