|誠||Only ex#251 fits into this category of grammar, ex #3788, ex #3790 , ex #3792 all not examples of this grammar pattern, they are こと(事） ＋ だから。Therefore is :|
ex#3788 : そういうこと ＋ だから
ex#3790 : 大事なこと ＋ だから
ex#3792 : やったこと ＋ だから
The above 3 examples, こと can be replaced by 事
|bamboo4||In modern day Japanese, you can say ことだから without using 事.|| |
|rubyhatchet||誠 is correct. This grammar only means "as always" when の is used in front of it. The other uses of ことだから, such as the examples that 誠 pointed out, have a different meaning.|| |
