#EngTrivia: “The reason is that…”

Apa kalian tahu Fellas, frase ‘the reason is because…’ itu kurang tepat? Frase yang benar adalah ‘the reason is that..’

Frase ‘the reason is because…’ terkesan berlebihan karena penggunaan ‘reason’ dan ‘because’ secara bersamaan.

  • Contoh:
    • (WRONG): “The reason John can’t go to the meeting is because he is sick.”
    • (RIGHT): “The reason John can’t go to the meeting is that he is sick.”
