    「安いから買う。」は、「安い。 だから、買う。」を短く言う言い方です。

      I'll buy it because it is cheap ⇒ ”安い” is an adjective.
    ex; おいしいからもっと食べたい I want to eat more because it is delicious.
       軽いから持ちます I'll carry it because it is light.

      I take a day off from work because of sickness. ”病気” is a noun.
    ex;雨で洗濯物が乾かない The laundry is not dried because of rain.
       交通渋滞で遅刻する  be late for work because of traffic jam.
