Giving to people for a purpose

In recent times, the obligation of developed nations to give aid for developing nations has been widely discussed.

This grammar item is handled differently by different languages. Let’s take a look at some examples:

  • Several highly independent intelligence operations were given to him.
  • Eventually they gave the house to their eldest son.
  • Don’t give it to them! They’ll waste it.
  • In these examples, give..to is followed by a person or group. (Indonesian flag kepada)

So, ‘to’ + person or people. What about ‘for’?

  • Cool, huh?! My parents gave it to me for my birthday.
  • I normally give a tip for good service, but this time I was disappointed.
  • Here give..for is followed by a purpose. (Indonesian flag untuk)

Now try this practice activity.

Recently I gave some money to my wife so that she could pay the electricity bill. I also gave her some extra money for the weekly shopping. She gave some of the money to her brother. Apparently he needed money for school books and for his English course. I told my wife that she could use any money left over for a trip to the salon.xxxxxRecently I gave some money to my wife so that she could pay the electricity bill.
