    Default Usage of 'for example'

    For example, I can check the weather and my email anytime, anywhere.
    -> I, for example, can check the weather and my email anytime, anywhere.

    I would like to know if meaning changes if 'for example' phrase is put in the middle of the sentence? Thank you so much as usual and have a good day.

    P.S If you do not like the example, please would you explain with your examples or you can put the phrase in other spaces.

    Default Re: Usage of 'for example'

    If you put "for example" straight after "I", you are giving yourself as the example of a person who can check their emails at any time.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
