Off-topic: chercher vs pour chercher

Unrelated but in the example  "Elle est descendue à la cave chercher une bouteille de vin." Why wasn't "pour chercher" used rather than just "chercher"? Is there a difference in meaning?

Hi Danielle,

Is it not just the difference between "to search" and "in order to search"?

That's what comes to mind for me.

Hope it helps.

Jim
