What is the difference between 'til' and 'for'
They both can mean "for" but under what context? I know there is another question that asked this but that question is three years old and the link they provided in the answers that was supposed to provide an explanation is dead. As a result, I still don't know the difference.
there are many variations on where to use these. I would like to see the comment from three years ago, if you still have the link to it.
Here are some examples of using for. I hope they can help clarify for you.
Han gør rent for mig. (He cleans for me). Han taler for os alle sammen. (He speaks for all of us).
and here are examples of using til:
Han laver mad til mig (He cooks food for me). Han taler til os alle sammen (He speaks to all of us).
"For" is used when the purpose is in service of someone or something.
"Til" is used when it is directed at someone or something.
That's my best explanation right now. I hope it adds clarity! Happy trails learning Danish!
