warn sb. of sth.
Please read the following sentence:
The policeman stopped him when he was driving home and _______him of sppeeding.
a. accused b. warned
'a' is correct. We can't used choose 'b' because the act of speeding had already taken place. 'to warn sb. of sth.' is used when we want to tell people something is going to happen. Is that right?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
Dear Casiopea please do not hurry to reply since you have spent so much time this evening expaining my questions. I can wait till tomorrow.
You would warn someone of a danger, so your analysis is right. You could say 'warned him for\about speeding', meaning that the police weren't going to charge him.
Thank you very much for your explanation. Now I see.
