    Default "Mention for me" or "Mention me"

    Hello,

    is it correct to write "Mention for me" and if it is correct , what is the difference with "Mention me"?

    Thank you in advance!

    Welcome to the forum.

    We will need more context in order to answer your question. Please give us a full sentence and the context in which it would be written.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I just would like to use this as a phrase. There is no sentece :)

    I would like to say "Mention for me!" . The context is understood as "Mention for me in this document" or "Mention for me in this analysis"

    Thanks :)

    In those two sentences, the "for" would be wrong.

    If you want the person to write your name in their document, then you would have to say "Mention me in the document" or just "Please mention me" (as long as the other person knows what you are talking about and why.)

    Default Re: "Mention for me" or "Mention me"

    I understand.
    However, what is the meaning of "Mention for me"? For example: "There is a mention for me in this article". Is this using of "mention for me" grammatically right or it is wrong at all? Does it means for example "In this document I'm mentioned" or "There is a litle text in this document that mention me"?

    "There is a mention for me" is not grammatically correct English so it means nothing.

    Try "I am mentioned in this document".

    Hello emsr2d2,

    Is your answer about the incorrect usage of "for" or do you mean that the word "mention" is incorrect?

    Because except "for", the sentence seemed okay to me since the word mention is noun here.

    Also a similar example in the link below (please see the definition 5)

    You think "There is a mention me" is correct? Perhaps "a mention of me"?
