I ran into this in the novel The Old Man and the Sea,
“I do not like for him to waken me. It is as though I were inferior.”
What has happened in the first sentence "I do not like for him to waken me"? The structure seems unfamiliar to me. Is it normal for instance to say, "I don't like for you to leave the country"? It seems unnatural. I normally would say, "I don't like you to leave the country" or "I don't like him to wake me up".
Links for my further studying would be appreciated.
