The phrase 'for example' is often used at the beginning of a sentence, but can I put it in the middle of a sentence? For instance, "Then she will be considered as a victim in, for example, a robbery event."

Can I make a sentence like this?

  • One of alternate mostly I would rather to use "For instance." – QuokMoon Apr 23 '17 at 6:16

That is fine.

For example,

  • "Many, like Helen, for example, come from very poor backgrounds."
  • "I can play quite a few musical instruments, for example, the flute, the guitar, and the piano."
  • "I love old TV shows, for example, The Twilight Zone and Gilligan's Island."

  • The word "like" is redundant in the sentence . Many, for example, Helen, come from very poor background. – Khan Apr 23 '17 at 5:03
