The Slovak preposition kvoli ('for the sake of') is frequently being used not only in its codified purpose/benefit sense (for the purpose of doing or achieving something; for the benefit of someone), but also in a causal sense (because of), discouraged by the present codification. As both readings can be clearly distinguished by the respective context of the preposition, we do not see any danger of their possible misinterpretation. After having analyzed the causal relationships and language evidence, we conclude that the causal reading of the kvoli preposition is acceptable both from the system and logical perspective.
