For nothing
No charge

But "for free" is surely wrong?

Like "nought per cent finance"...

I would go further than unnnecessary and say ungrammatical...

ignorant and wrong

HuwEdwards Wed 13-Aug-08 18:48:19

in the same vein I feel, is 'it comprises of'

Nope, that too is wrong.

Should the Pedants storm MN Towers and demand the renaming of the "For Free" topic?

What's wrong with just plain old 'free'? Why does it have to be dressed up with 'for'? <bemused>
