I forgot. When did it become grammatically correct for people to use comma splices?
It's your move.

I was taught not to start with and, or, but or because, with a small number of exceptions involving the arrangement of words.

example (from what i remember) -
bad - "I'm starting the sentence with "because." Why? Because fuck you."
good - "Because of "fuck you," I can start the sentence with the word 'because' "


I'd kill by own people to get a piece of that.


DS2 ep 1


note - the reason i don't capitalize a lot of times is because i'm lazy.

Starting a sentence with and, or, but, or because isn't technically wrong, it's just based on context. They teach little kids not to do it so they don't balls it up and make nonsensical sentences.

example

good:
"why do you go to the arcade everyday after school?"
"Because I love playing games."

Bad:
"Do you have any pets Adam?"
"And a dog."

Using and, or, but, or because at the beginning of a sentence is just cutting out information given earlier. So long as the first half of the sentence can be inferred by context or previous knowledge then it can be completely omitted. Like if someone asked you what your name is you can just say, "Alex" instead of "My name is Alex" because they already know that you are telling them your name.

(The same concept comes up when you learn new languages. We take it for granted most of the time, but it can be really confusing when your first learning it. That's why they tell kids not to do it.)

gotcha.
context of the prev. sentence is important.
(in school, they just taught us not to bother doing it, but never really gave an explanation of how to do it properly. my example is just what my mother explained. (she used "because i said so" instead of the one i used, though.)


also, yeah, i've heard that English is a bitch to learn.
