difference between as, since, because, now that and in as much as?

I wonder that can the words replace each other completely in any context?

yes, sometimes they can replace each other and other times they cannot.

 

It really depends A LOT on; time, place, meaning etc.

 

Example;

 

1. Then I will not tell you either, since you are so stubborn

 

2. Then I will not tell you either, because you are so stubborn

 

both sentences refers to him/her being stubborn is the reason why, he/she will not tell him/her. It's just two different ways of saying it.

 

1. but "since" gives us the impression that he/she didn't know that he/she was stubborn.

 

2. whilst "because" tells us that he/she already knew he/she was stubborn.

Context can decide how it is interpreted.

They all are words frequently used and most of them have different meanings according to different contexts. You may practice to make sentences with those words and we can revise if there is any inapproriate usage.
