    please correct my Sentence

    Hi Sir/ Mam,

    Can you please tell me whether below sentence is correct or wrong.
    Is that right to use 'for' in the below sentence.

    "I would like to take Work From Home for today."

    Thanks
    Chakradhar

    Re: please correct my Sentence

    The "for" could be omitted.
    Why do you capitalise "work from home"?
    "Take work from home" doesn't make sense. Do you mean "work from home"?

    Thanks for the reply. I repeatedly posted same thing in my Outlook email. I am feeling bad for my bad grammar.

    Re: please correct my Sentence

    We have "Work from Home" option. So i just thought of saying

    I would like to take "Work from home" option for today.

    Not sure why it is not correct.

    I know this is one of those sentences which are widely accepted in India but they are grammatically incorrect.
    You don't have to feel bad For your bad grammar,it is widely accepted in India.

    How about if we ask Native speakers about the below construction
    I would like to take"work from home" option today.

    And I would like to tell you,chakradhar,"for today" that you have used is word to word translation of its Hindi
    translative counterpart,Try to Translate it as you read.English prepositions does not work the same way as the Hindi prepositions.

    If you put 'the' before 'work from home', that seems fine to me. I would omit 'for'. I assume that you have emailed or phoned in this message before work in the office normally begins.

    'Thank you' is two words, but your clicks on 'Thank' were all the thanks we need.
