Can the verb 'mention' be used with 'about'?
For example, "He likes to mention about his achievements."
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
NOT A TEACHER
butHe likes to talk about his achievements.
And neither should "discuss" be followed by "about", so:He likes to mention his achievements.
He likes to discuss his achievements.
As a noun, you can use of:
H emade no mention of his achievements.
Don't use a preposition after the verb.
Thanks, bhaisahab, for confirming that 'mention about' is wrong.
It's possible to use the verb "mention" followed by "about" correctly:
In all, he mentioned about fifty of his co-workers by name and said something positive about each one.
Here, "about" modifies "fifty". Probably not exactly fifty, but about fifty.
Among the things he mentioned about Christmas is that it inspires people “to keep the faith and to hold on to an enduring hope in humanity.”
In this sentence, it's the things that are about Christmas, not the mentioning.
