In Reply to: For mine Posted by Michael Sinclair on October 19, 2006
: I have a question about "for mine".
: You see this on a lot of chat forums. ie - "Dogs are better than cats for mine."
: "For mine, dogs are better than cats." (Which happens to be true!)
: It seems to replace 'in my opinion' but it doesn't seem to make any literary sense. I would love to hear if this is correct english or if it's an utter bastardisation of the language and where it originated from. (One guess!!!)
It would be correct if there was a previous sentence saying, perhaps, "For my part, dogs are better than cats." But lacking that it seems as though great liberties were being taken with the language.
