Would you please use the conjunction 'for' in a sentence?
You use the coordinating conjunction "for" to join two independent clauses when the second independent clause is giving the reason for the first independent clause.
Note that this is kind of high-brow and fancy and you are usually better served with a difference conjunction such as "because".
I will win this race, for I have rigged the competition.
Why will I win the race? Because I rigged the competition.
I was happy to let the students teach each other, for I had been talking all day.
