    ask for - claim for - demand for - appeal for

    I know all these verbs are used when someone has to ask for something but I was wondering if they are used in different contexts or with different level of enphasis. Could you explain them with some example, please? The dictionary is not clear enough.

    Try writing some sentences showing how you think they might be used.
