Using as, since, because and so
The words as, since and because can be used to refer to the reason for something. So is used to refer to the result.
We can combine these two sentences into one in the following ways.
Clauses introduced by as and since usually come at the beginning of sentences. As and since-clauses are relatively formal. In a less formal style, we can express the same idea using so.
A because-clause can go either before or after the main clause.
When a subordinate clause comes at the beginning of a sentence, we usually separate it with a comma.
