    Wink Unusual for x of

    I've just read in my teacher's book, the preposition "of" after "unusual" and at the same time, it was written that the preposition for that word is "for". Do you think there was a mistake???

    The sentence was: "It was unusual of him".

    Thank you very much!

    It was unusal for him to behave like that.
    'For' is much more common.
