Of Cause Or Of Course

Do you like this?
Created Date: Wed 04 Jan 2012

Note:

Which one is correct of course or of cause? This has been confusing many students and new English learners.

 

Answer:
Of Course is a correct phrase. For example:
+Do you like ice cream?
Of course, everybody likes ice cream.
+Do you have to do the assignment today?
Of course, I have to do it.

Of cause is not a proper phrase. Cause sounds more like a "cause and effect". For example:
He died of an unknown cause.
You can see that there is something between of and cause here. Therefore, we can't use of cause as a separate phrase. It's not correct.
