請問在英文文法中有提到: provide sth for sb 但實際上在很多網站上寫的是: provide sth to sb, 網站上寫得對嗎? 為何要如此寫?

    多數時候,provide something to/for someone 是沒有差別。

    The agreement provided guarantees for union members when layoffs are considered.

    若要區分,則

    The hotel provides a playroom for children. (消極地提供此一服務,不確定每位孩童都享用到此一服務)

    We provide legal advice and services to our clients. (此一服務是直接提供與客戶,確保每一位客戶都接受到此一服務)

    1.) If you provided umbrellas for your guests, that means that there is a supply of umbrellas available for their use.

    2.) If you provided umbrellas to your guests, I would be more likely to assume they each have an umbrella in their hand.

    附帶一提,to 普遍的使用是非常近期的現象,2000年後,有後來居上的趨勢。

    我很懷疑一般文法書有可能把某一單字所有的用法都寫入。

    provide sth to sb 我覺得用得很普遍,用to 有實際移動的意味

    抄幾句英語系國家例句如下

    1.What types of foreign aid does the U.S. provide to (免費提供 – 物資移動) other countries?

    2.List four benefits that networks provide to (提供 – 服務移動到府) their users?

    3.Provide medicine to children(提供藥物給小孩--物資移動) living with AIDS

    4.Funding will help us provide books to schools (提供書本給學校--物資移動) we are working with, to children who don't have books and to many more schools in rural areas.

    另provide with 也是一種用法

    1. I need help. I don't get it. If possible, please provide with (提供) an answer.?

    網站上寫的對嗎?

    沒看到資料,當然不知,若是英語教學網站應不會出錯,像是本網站(例如我寫的 - 我英文不好),還是要謹慎判斷
