    for and during

    I read a sentence:
    If you went somewhere for the summer, you stayed there.

    Is it a correct sentence. Can I use for before the summer. I feel it is during. which one is right. If for is correct How can you justify that there should be for.
    Thankyou sir,

    Re: for and during

    for the summer --> from the beginning of the summer to the end you will be there
    during the summer --> unspecific duration
    in the summer --> does not imply duration
