How do you spell "for that"?
Split and separate spelling of words is a rather difficult question in Russian spelling. However, it can be easily learned if you remember the theory and examples.
Let's try to understand how it is written: for this or that? Both options are correct. Writing depends on which part of the speech is the given word - independent or official. Let's consider examples.
- For that it is spelled separately, if that is the demonstrative pronoun, to it it is possible to ask a question. In this case, for will be an excuse.
Example: for that task (for what task?).
- But it is written together, if it is an alliance. The union can not be asked a question, but it can easily be replaced by another union.
Example: "He solved the problem for a long time, but (= but) did it right".
Thus, by determining the part of the speech, you can choose the correct spelling.
