Examples of use of why

The doubt regarding the way to write the word why, because, why or why is very frequent in the Spanish language. However, despite the confusion that this word can cause, its meaning and application are very different in each case.

 The use of “because”

This is understood as a casual conjunction . This means that when used there will be a subordinate clause whose function is to explain something of the main clause. It is called atona conjunction , which means that the last syllable should not be emphasized as stressed since it is not.

  7. She did not respond to your greeting because she is deaf

The use of “why”

In this case, because it is made up of a preposition ” por ” and a pronoun ” that ” (relative pronoun). This word can be replaced by ” which “, ” which ” or ” which “. In this case, it is possible to add the article “the” or “the” between both words. For example: This is the reason for (the) that called you urgently.

  4. I can not know the reason for ( the ) that yell at you that way

 It can also be the preposition ” by ” and the subordinating conjunction ” that “. In these cases the preposition ” by ” appears followed by a subordinate clause that uses the preposition ” that “. Example: The doctor was concerned that the entire population could get sick.
