Due to、Because of 傻傻分不清_5個 常見「因為」文法整理

在英文中有很多用法都能翻譯為「因為」但每種都有文法上的差異,

有些是介係詞而有些是可以當作連接詞,又有部分是語氣上給人的感受不同,

不如就讓我們繼續看下去,讓小編一次讓你搞懂吧!

Because / Because of

Because&because of文法介紹

大家在寫作時,要翻譯「因為」時,腦中第一浮現的是不是”because”呢?

“because”可以說是因果句型裡必學的文法,也是最簡單的一個了,

那他跟”because of”差別在哪呢?

“because”屬於連接詞,因此後面要加上一個完整的句子,

也就是要有主詞跟動詞;而”because of”因為接上”of”後變成了介係詞,

因此後面接的是動名詞或名詞,而不是句子哦。

以下句子中文意思一模一樣,但在英文寫法上有些許的不同,

大家可以觀察一下兩者後面發生了甚麼變化呢。

Due to

due to文法介紹

“Due to” 與”because of”類似是個介係詞,後面要接上名詞或動名詞,不可以加句子。

due to比較例句

  1. Our happy childhood is due to our parents’ sacrifice and devoting

    我們快樂的童年是因為父母的犧牲與奉獻。

  2. His failure is due to his arrogance and lack of modesty.

    他的失敗是因為自負及缺少謙卑的心

高中時是不是常常會把due to與because of 兩者劃上等號呢?

而且還用的很自然絲毫沒感覺到異常,

小編可以理解看到to跟of 就覺得他們後面都接名詞,

因此自然而然地把他們歸類在一起。

事實上他們的用法是不一樣的哦!

以下幾個例子給大家參考,能發現兩者之間的不同嗎?

  1. Because of a serious lack of funding, the project has come to a halt. (o)

  2. Due to a serious lack of funding, the project has come to a halt. (x)

    因為嚴重缺乏資金,這項計畫已經停止了。

  3. His success is due to creative marketing. (o)

  4. His success is because of creative marketing. (x)

    他的成功是因創意行銷。

仔細觀察下是不是發現兩者之間的差異呢?如果還不知道讓小編告訴你。

due to vs. because of文法比較及解析

大家在觀察時可以先把”because of “跟” due to” 遮起來不看,

可以發現”because of”後面所連接的還是完整句子,

而”due to” 遮起來後,整句話的意思變不完整了。

而會有兩者差異的原因是因為Because of+ N/Ving為副詞片語,

副詞片語大家可以把它當作副詞看因此句子中的角色為可有可無的,

並不會影響語意,而owing to跟thanks to也是一樣的用法哦;

而due to+ N/Ving為形容詞片語,必須放在be動詞的後方。

owing to / thanks to比較例句 

  1. Owing to the new quarantine policy, residents in the affected area are asked to evacuate. (o)

  2. Due to the new quarantine policy, residents in the affected area are asked to evacuate. (x)
