I'd like to find results from Google Search containing the following pattern: a phrase initiated with the word because - followed by any word - and ended with a period. For example: "because tired." "because happy." "because awesome.", etc.

Initially I tried inserting the string because * . but two problems arised:

1- The * returns results with one or more words and I'd like it to find only a single word before the period (as it works with Microsoft Word).

2- The . doesn't seem to be recognized by the search engine. So, is there a way to include punctuation in the search?
