I have a piece of homework. I'm requested to say what speaker is doing. There are two questions.
May I sit down? ---> asking permission
What jobs should I apply for? ---> asking for advice.
Why we use ask for with advice, but not with permission? They are obviously nouns. Why don't they use asking for permission? Are there any difference between asking for permission and asking permission.
Ask and ask for: typical error
We use for when we request someone to give us something:
I called them to ask for more details.
Not: I called them to ask more details.
We also request somebody to give us permission. Why do they use asking permission?
