    這是因為形容詞子句中介系詞的受詞是[先行詞]things,所以才讓介系詞for成為句尾。

    原句可以分割成兩句:

    People set records for certain things.

    There seems to be no limit to these things.

    = There seems to be no limit to the things (that) people set records for.

    關係代名詞that是關係子句(形容詞子句)的受詞時,可以省略。

    2011-08-07 14:53:37 補充:

    What are you looking for?

    就是因為做為for的受詞的疑問代名詞被移到句子前面去了,所以留下介系詞在句尾。

    這是一句日常生活的用語。

    2011-08-07 14:55:16 補充:

    I don't know what you are looking for.

    變成間接問句後,介系詞for還是留在句尾。

    你是對的! 本來在英文文法就不該以介係詞結尾.

    但是美語是可以.

    所以只是現在通用美語.

    你不用疑惑.

    片語動詞可以是及物動詞有直接受詞例如:I made an story up.

    I made up an story.

    還原本句There seems to be no limit to the things (that) people set records for .

    =There seems to be no limit to the things (that) people set for records .------

    片語動詞分3種:

    介詞動詞,片語動詞,片語介詞動詞。請參考相關文法書籍-----
