Student or Learner
I have a question how to use the word "permission".
1. Ask permission
2. Ask for permission
I'd thought the "for" was required but my dictionary shows them both as example usage.
Can anyone please tell me which is more acceptable or if there's any difference?
I suppose technically they can be paraphrased as follows but they virtually mean the same.
1. Ask permission: to ask whether permission can be granted.
2. Ask for permission: to make a request for permission.
Can you please name other words that work just the same regardless of the presence of "for"?
