I am searching for an answer to the use of 'for' in the following sentences:
- I would like for you to keep it.
- Life was too weird for Jeff to return to class.
I've found some answers. For example: 'because' or 'since' and also as a conjunction instead of as a preposition and I've seen it described as an intensifier. But I don't think it's any of those here. Is it a prepositional phrase?
If so, why is it possible to take out 'for' in the first sentence but not in the second?
