In the following sentence:

因森发·加计学院问题曝光率增高的「sontaku」一词,也已经成为了日常用语。

I know the use of 而 as "and", but I feel it doesn't make sense here to use 而, since I don't understand what it connects.

So how does 而 work here? Also, is my understanding correct that 而 here doesn't express "and"?

2

is not used as and here, but as a result;with the result that;thus.

因A而B is a common usage; is used to emphasize that A is the cause, is used to represent that B is the result.

You can also use 因为 or 由于 instead of in this usage.

  • Thanks and that makes sense! Is there any other pattern except 因 in this usage? – Blaszard Dec 2 '17 at 12:43
