Dear native speakers,

What do you think about this: "Whys and wherefores of this illness is...."

Does it sound normal to you?

I meant "Reasons of this illness is..."

Do you have any other alternatives for "reason" in this sense?
thank you a lot!

Hi,

What do you think about this: "The whys and wherefores of this illness are --is--.."

Does it sound normal to you? Not really. And it would mean both the reasons and the facts.

I meant "Reasons of this illness is..."

Do you have any other alternatives for "reason" in this sense? The causes.

Clive
