    Default Re: Use of verb "mention"

    I am not a native speaker, but I would not use "about".

    Examples:


    He mentioned this book in his work.
    She mentioned seeing your car there.

    I hope this helps.

    CALD supports your point of view:

    ---
    No preposition is normally needed after the verb mention.
    He didn't mention the price.
    He didn't mention about the price.
