As a non-native English speaker I have always had trouble choosing between âofâ and âforâ, as in the case of following sentence:
a) You do not have the privilege to view details for this shipment.
b) ÂYou do not have the privilege to view details of Âthis shipment.
Which sentence reflects the correct usage: a or b?
Also, I would appreciate if you could point me to good websites and books on English grammar.
