Hallo, I deleted the translation of ancient greek "gar", because it means "so", "then", not "because of".
I think also many translations of for as a conjunction are wrong, as they are in facts translations of the "for" as a preposition, not as a conjunction. "For" as a conjunction can be translated only by words with the same meaning of "because". This is not the case of many of the translations, that are not "because" but just "for" as a preposition, like, "for you", or "for example".

- 4: used as a function word to indicate suitability or fitness <it is not for you to choose> <ready for action>

- Added (again, started watching US sports about 20 years ago). It means out of, especially in US sports such as baseball and basketball. In general, can refer to any attempt to success ratio. So "when it comes to winning on the horses, I'm two for three this year". Mglovesfun (talk) 11:13, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
