Japanese 251 - Explaining why using noun + で

Another way to give reasons is by using the pattern noun + で. You can only use this pattern if the noun expresses something that is beyond human control. Otherwise, you'll have to use から or ので instead.

Using noun + で for expressing reasons is common in casual spoken conversation. In more formal settings or in writing, から or ので are more commonly used.
