    Re: cried of pain or cried for pain?

    Hi,

    I would say "cried in pain". I think "cried out of pain" is also correct.

    Welcome to the forums, eugyn, and thank you for giving your thread a good title.

    Neither of those prepositions is correct.

    Use 'cried in pain' or 'cried with pain.'

    Or "cried from pain".
