    Default tired of X tired from

    Thanks for all the explanations, but the fact is that even looking up TIRE and seeing both definitions


    Main Entry: 1tire
    Pronunciation: 'tIr
    Function: verb
    Inflected Form(s): tired; tir·ing

    intransitive senses : to become weary

    transitive senses
    1 : to exhaust or greatly decrease the physical strength of : FATIGUE
    2 : to wear out the patience of : BORE

    ****************************

    I canīt find anywhere an example using the preposition FROM. If anyone knows where to find it, I would appreciate it!

    There may not be a definition of "tire from". In that use, "was tired from" the verb is in the passive voice and "from" is just a normal preposition.
