In informal US English, is the "for" optional in a sentence like this:

I want to know what you brought (for) me.

Is it written like this, instead:

I want to know what you brought me.

  • Both are fine. Bring me is the most common. I'm not sure one can say that bring for a person is informal US English. – Lambie Apr 12 '18 at 16:04
  • brought for you and brought you are both idiomatic. There's nothing especially formal or informal about them, they're neutral. google.com/… – Tᴚoɯɐuo Apr 12 '18 at 17:31
