    Re: pay/pay for

    There are three structures:

    1. Pay someone for something; e.g., Pay me for the book.
    2. Pay something for something; e.g., Pay $2 for the book.
    3. Pay for something; e.g., Pay for the book.

    Note, pay for has another meaning, to suffer or be punished for;e.g., to pay for one's sins.

    Harry Smith, since I am unable to PM you, I will post my message to you here.

    Advising posters to take English lessons is an inappropriate response. If you don't know the answer to a given poster's question, either ask the poster to clarify the request or do not respond at all.

    Hi, Casiopea!
    You are right! But it wasn't an advising poster. It was just an example how to use "pay for" in a sentence. You have to read it again if you can find it.

    If that's the case, I apologize. Having said that though, you need to introduce your examples, please, and explain your examples. That's only fair, right? This is a discussion Forum; talk about your response, explain it; remember your audience. Don't leave it up to the reader to figure out what it is you're trying to contribute. Be kind.
