    for a consideration

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me the proper interpretation of the following expressions?

    1. for your kind consideration
    2. from consideration of kindness
    3. money is no consideration
    4. for a consideration

    I think there is an unexplainable talking in cross-purposes.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    V.

    Exclamation Re: for a consideration

    [quote=vil;338141]Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me the proper interpretation of the following expressions?

    1. for your kind consideration: to think about seriously: My proposal is under consideration by my boss.
    2. from consideration of kindness- to make allowances for; We must take the bad weather into consideration and allow more time for traveling time to our employees.
    3. money is no consideration-careful thought: The buyer accepted the offer after careful consideration.
    4. for a consideration - payment of money:The lawyer agreed to handle company matters for a consideration of $5000US
    I think there is an unexplainable talking in cross-purposes.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    This means "money is not an issue", or "It doesn't matter how much it costs".
    Eg:
    "My daughter needs an operation. Money is no consideration."
    "I have to have the new Apple iThing! Money is no consideration."
    The speaker means he's not even going to consider money. He will pay whatever it costs.

    Re: for a consideration

    Hi Raymott,

    I couldn’t determine the associational connection between “for your kind consideration” or “from consideration of kindness” and “for a consideration”. I know that “for a consideration” = “non gratuitous” = “against payment” = “for remuneration” = “for a valuable consideratation” = “to return for payment” so that is not a matter of interest to me. Discussing problems for me are the contrary meanings of the similar expressions.

    Regards

    "I'm sending you this proposal for your kind consideration" = "I'm sending you this proposal. Would you kindly consider it?"

    "from consideration of kindness" sounds a bit strange. "My boss gave me the day off work out of consideration of kindness, because I told him you were sick". Simply means "Because he is kind; because he considered it the kind thing to do". This is usually expressed as "for compassionate reasons".
