    Question All credits goes to you

    Hi,

    I always see "All credits goes to ...." at other places, why don't say "All credits for ..."?

    Credit in here means a acknowledgment, so I think "for" is better than "goes to", because Peoples make a acknowledgment for you, not "go to" you.

    Right?

    Thanks.

    Re: All credits goes to you

    "All credit goes to..." means that that person (or those people) should receive the recognition for doing a job well. "Credit" is a non-count noun here.


    I don't know what "all credits for" would be used for.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
