Showing reason is a very complex matter in Japanese, but these three items, two of which are related to each other, will give you a basic understanding of how to do this.
The most important usage of the conjunctive particle から is to connect clauses to mean "because". It shows reason and may solicit a response, suggest something, or any means that appeals to the listener. If the sentence is polite, the clause it modifies should be too.
から doesn't have to be used after a dependent clause to show reason. It may also be at the end of a sentence. When at the end of the sentence and followed by だ, you can make a strong assertion. Without a copula, though, you show reason with more emotional appeal. Regardless, if から is used with nouns or 形容動詞, it must be preceded by the copula!
から goes after the 終止形. So, you should use it after verbs, adjectives, or a copula phrase.
In Standard Japanese, you cannot say なから. However, it does exist in certain dialects. For the purposes of Tokyo speech, it is deemed incorrect.
For some of these examples, a question would be stated before the response in order to sound perfectly natural.
Since we have time, how about taking a break?
It's because the machine broke.
It's because I have an exam tomorrow.
It's because it's easy.
17. あいつが馬鹿だからだな。 (Masculine)
It's because he's an idiot, you know.
から can mean "because" and のだ strongly shows reason. Thus, んだから has it that the listener knows the "why". The speaker, then, reasserts. If the listener doesn't know the "why", then it's extremely pushy. A clause following のだから often expresses the speaker's judgment, intent, wish, etc.
18. やべーから、早くしろ！時間(が)ねーんだよ。すでに遅れてんだから、早よ準備しろ！(Casual; vulgar)
We're screwed, so hurry up! We don't have time! We're already late, so get ready already!
～たら makes a hypothetical. ねーんだよ means the same thing as ないんだよ. It is just more vulgar. ～てんだ is a contraction of ～ているんだ.
Unlike から, ので follows the 連体形 of adjectives, verbs, and copula phrases.
*1: ですので is technically incorrect Japanese, but it is has become frequently used to the point that is now correct Japanese.
*2: Although improper in Standard Japanese, だので is actually seen, but it's dialectical.
This rule, though, is relatively new in Japanese, and it really has no bearing over ので. In fact, you can also find ～ますので. This, however, will be considered ungrammatical by more speakers than ですので. Why this is the case is not clear, but it probably has to deal with part of speech and the formal nature of ので. If someone doesn't like ～ますので, the person is probably from West Japan.
Since it is warm today, the cherry blossoms will likely be in full bloom.
Since I finished my homework, I went to play outside.
Since that dish wasn't as a good as I thought it would be, I didn't eat more than a bite.
Because he said he wanted to go to an art museum, I took him around.
Since it was so cold, I turned on the heater.
As I want to become good at Japanese, I'll study with all my might.
“How much will it cost (to send) for the package?” “Since it is 600 grams, it will be 1500 yen”.
When at the end of a sentence, ので is essentially a softer version of のだ.
Sorry, I've got a commitment.
I need to catch the last train.
Sentence Note: Ex. 26 is in response to a question.
