for/ because/ punctuation #1 (permalink) Fri Nov 15, 2013 14:55 pm   for/ because/ punctuation
 

Which is correct:

1-He was not condemned to death, for saving a child's life.

2-He was not condemned to death for saving a child's life.

3-For saving a child's life, he was not condemned to death.


He was not condemned to death because he had saved a child's life.
Otherwise he would have been condemned to death.

Gratefully,
Navi.

For saving a child's life, he was not condemned to death - is correct. The other sentences with 'for' do NOT work well. They carry too much confusion.
