    Spare

    Winnie:You want my advice? Drink a lot of liquids and spare yourself the worst of the heat!


    My question is related to the use of the word spare. Can't I say "SPARE YOURSELF FROM THE WORST OF THE HEAT!" ? In the above dialogue FROM has not been used with the word spare.

    thanks and regards

    Re: Spare

    Yes, the use of from is quite correct but equally the sentence stands without it.
