I'd like to find out if the phrase "an example for this" is English usage. More specifically, I'd like to know if the preposition "for" is correct. The sentence was written by a German person.
I'm an American and know most of the differences between BrE and AmE, but had to pause and consider this one because I've never heard it said like that. I've always said it with the preposition "of": an example of this is . . . .
I inquired on Google, using various questions, but without success.
Is this another British versus American English difference? Or is it, as I suppose, a direct translation from German?
