    Preposition

    Is it grammatically correct to say, I went to the part OR I went for the party?


    Best regards,

    Abhishek

    Re: Preposition

    If you mean 'I went to the party', they are both grammatically correct, but have different meaings.

    What do you want them to mean?

    Re: Preposition

    I went to the party = I attended the party.
    I went for the part = I applied for/auditioned for a role in a play/film/TV show.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
