As an overt causal marker in English, 'because' often displays characteristics of discourse marker when used in colloquial situations. This paper mainly analyzes the register misuses of 'because' in Chinese EFL learners' English writing based on the "Chinese Learner Corpus" with a reference corpus-Brown. It is found that Chinese learners tend to have an overuse of 'because' in their writing, among which colloquialism stands out and generic features of academic writing see frequent violation. These mistakes can possibly be attributed to developmental errors and the negative transfer of the mother tongue.
