Use of e.g. and for example
This may not be a big question, but I need some certainly. There is no such thing (100%) in this world though.
what is the difference between e.g. and for example? To my knowledge, " e.g." is used in a less formal text than "for example", am I right?
thank you in advance
Re: Use of e.g. and for example
You are not, in my opinion. I see no real difference in formality, but feel (and it's no more than a feeling) that 'for example' may be more commonly used than 'e.g' in informal writing,
