Would you be kind enough to explain to m the difference between the meanings of “blame” and “reproach”?
I know that “blame” means to find fault with someone, but on the other hand the “reproach” means the same.
Would you be kind also to tell me your opinion concerning the usage of “blame” and “reproach” in the following sentences?
I could not help somehow blaming her.
He said,”Can you blame me?”
They blamed each other.
Why you use “He is not to blame.” and not the logical “He is to be blame.”?
It would be as well to reproach her gently on his score.
Aunt Milly prophesied that he would fail and reproached him for not having the enterprise to try.
He wondered whether the mestizo had stolen his mule, and reproached himself for the necessary suspicion.
Thank you for your efforts.
