    Default dread of height

    If a person dreads of height, which of the following sounds more nature to native speakers?

    1. I dread of height.
    2. I have acrophobia.
    3. I dread of high place.

    If I make even the slightest error in the above sentences, please also correct. Appreciate it. Thanks a lot!
