    For vs because

    Hello,

    Does for instead of because sound dated to the modern English ear? (I do not like ManCity for I am a fan of The Red Devils)

    I am not going to use it, I am asking just out of curiosity for I come across it chiefly in an older literature.



    Thank you very much

    It sounds dated to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I don't think I have ever used 'for' in that sense.
