Is “requested for” correct? I was taught that "requested" cannot" cannot be used with "for".

Thanks.

[quote=Amybal]Hi, there is anything wrong in these sentences?

Short summary
After five years, a brotherhood of former special forces decides to get together again for one last heist. But, they unwittingly get caught up in a heist planned by an international drug lord.

Long summary
A group of former mercenaries reunite to plan an epic heist: boosting a truck full of medicine held by a foreign intelligence agency to supply a refugee camp in need. But when they find the truck is actually filled with stolen gold, the band of brothers realize they’ve been double-crossed by one of their own and putting the situation right will be all out war.

Hello,

Quote:
People who cannot speak can talk by using signs.
(Longman Dictionary of American English)


I pay attention to the combination of the words 'speak' and 'talk' in the sentence.
Other combinations are possible, though in theory.
They are as follows, including the original one.
A. speak……talk
B. speak……speak
C. talk………speak
D. talk………talk
Why did the writer choose the combination A from among A, B, C and D?

Thank you.
Aa person who has a speech impaired speech wasn't born this case and 1 dr. left the medication
too long speak too fast sounds like greek to someone but when a person's mouth is moist and talks slow
most of the time can be understood. To have only one ear to hear from and even a hearing aid can be spoken and talked to
is very lucky even if their perception from what direction the person finally locates the direction the person
voice is coming from in this case to be spoken to thoroughly doesn't feel left out of the conversationApplause Applause Applause Applause

It's not a common grammatical form, really - but it is fairly common as a single phrase "a great big 'thank you'".

Really, it's just this, in short.
'I'd like to say a sentence. I would like to make it a big, noticeable, important statement.
That sentence is "Thank you!"'


"Thank you" is used as a noun.
"Great big" is an adjectival phrase.
"A" is the article for the noun-phrase "great big 'thank you'".

It's not exactly an idiom (an idiom usually has a meaning which is hidden - you cannot understand it from the words) - but, yes, it is a 'special phrase' which is used commonly - this is why I put it in inverted commas; to show that it is not being used in the normal way.

"Hello" can be used like this too.

And a great big 'Hello' to all the viewers who have just joined us.
I'd like to say a great big 'Hello' to my mother who will be watching us tonight.
When you give others creates a warm fuzzy feeling inside of you.Merci' Beau Coupe indicates thank you very much. Being grateful recognizing that you are a noble gentleman and a down to earth person1!!Dancing Dancing Whistle Applause Applause Applause Applause
