Is there a difference between Therefor and Therefore? [closed]

I’m a non-native English speaker, and my automatic spellchecker seems to accept both therefore and therefor. Is one orthography preferred ? Is that a British vs. American difference ? Or an old vs. more recent orthography ? Or something else ?

Answer

Therefor means for that.

For example:

Here we sell guitars and accessories therefor.

Therefor is one of a whole series of adverbs: thereof (of that), thereafter(after that), therein (in there), etc.

If you are familiar with German – the Germanic sister of English – you can find a direct analogy there:

for = für

therefor, for that = dafür (literally, therefor)

Therefore, as you must know, means as a (logical) consequence
