Student or Learner
Hi I'm a student who studies English syntax this semester.
"It is important for us to spend time with children."
In this sentence, is 'for' a preposition?
If it isn't, can you name it?
Thanks in advance
Yes, and 99.99% of the time in what you hear and read, it will be.
'for' does have one other use, as a conjunction, as in
"He felt guilty, for he knew that he bore a share of the responsibility for her downfall in society."
