Perbedaan “As”, “Because” dan “Since”

by on

“As”, “because” dan “since” sama-sama bisa digunakan untuk menggabungkan kalimat yang menyatakan sebab-akibat. Namun “because” adalah kata yang paling sering digunakan sehingga beberapa pelajar Bahasa Inggris merasa sedikit bingung saat dihadapkan dengan “as” dan “since” dengan fungsi yang sama.

  • I bought some groceries as I passed the store.
  • Tina walked in tip-toed because she didn’t want to wake up her sister.
  • Since I’m here early, I can help you make dinner.

Lalu apa perbedaan diantara ketiganya?

“Because” digunakan ketika kamu ingin menekankan alasan dalam kalimatmu.

  • I didn’t go to work because I caught a cold.
  • Ammy didn’t play basketball today because it was raining all day.
  • Sometimes I speak louder because I want people to pay attention to me.

“As” dan “since” lebih jarang digunakan karena keduanya dapat diartikan dengan berbagai cara. Kedua kata tersebut juga digunakan ketika dalam penulisan dan percakapan formal.
