I have a question about the preposition to use with "threat":
1. "He made threats against her."
2. "He made threats at her."
3. "He made threats toward her."
Should it be "against", "at", or "toward"?
So, the "at" and "toward" versions are universally-condemned nonstandard variants of the "against" version?
I could accept 'against' or 'towards', but not 'at'.
(BE 'towards' = AE 'toward'.)
The preposition doesn't just rely on the following noun. Your response seems to infer that the only thing you can do with threats is "make" them. But if you change the verb, you can use different prepositions. And you'll find this happens a lot.
Is it correct to say: He was hurling threats at the teacher.
"He hurled insults at the teacher" would work in BrE.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
