"Allow for" or "allow to"?? [#permalink] New post 18 Jan 2006, 07:23
I was looking at the Idiom sticky and saw that allow should go with for "allow for".

So the common practice of "Allow to" is incorrect?

I think either is fine depending on the context.

eg. "I will allow him to borrow my bike."

or "I must allow for additional costs."
