Why Because in Spanish

Lets begin by stressing that "por qué" and "porque" have different meanings.

Literally speaking, if we do a word for word translation, "por qué" means "for what". So, "for what" is how we say WHY in Spanish.

But the word for "because" is one word: PORQUE (note how there is no space, because it is only one word).

Also, the question "why" (por qué) carries a "tilde" (é), while the answer "because" (porque) doesn't carry a tilde. That is because "que" always carries a tilde when it implies a question.
