    with/for

    1-For men, height is important.
    2-With men, height is important.

    Which of the above correspond to which of the below:

    a-Men consider height (perhaps a woman's height) to be important
    b-It is important whether a man is tall or not (perhaps in the eyes of women)
    c-The sentence is ambiguous

    I think both are ambiguous.

    Re: with/for

    #1 suggests to me a, slightly revised - Men consider height (their own or that of others) to be important.
    #2 is ambiguous.
