I often cringe when I hear the words “for free.” Merriam-Webster Dictionary lists about a dozen uses of the word free and even dozens more sub-uses. Typically, most will agree the word free should be used as an adjective, verb or adverb.

Some of Webster’s uses include not costing or charging anything; having legal rights as a citizen; having no trade restriction; not bound, confined or detained; having no obligation; not obstructed, restricted or impeded; not fastened; separate or free standing and without charge. The term “for free” is usually defined as offered for nothing, for no charge or offered without cost.
