Starting with ‘because’

Like ‘and’ and ‘but’, you can also start a sentence with the subordinating conjunction ‘because’, as long as you’re careful. When you slap ‘because’ at the beginning of a clause, it usually subordinates the clause, turning it into a dependent or subordinate clause. This means you’ve got to make sure you have an independent clause in the same sentence, otherwise it will be a sentence fragment.
