    blaming/scodling his daughter

    The short-tempered father is blaming his daughter.


    Hi,
    The above is a stand-alone sentence. Is blaming equal to scolding? Thanks.

    No. Look up the meanings of these words here, and bookmark the OneLook site for future reference.

    You can blame someone without scolding them.

    I think it is also possible to scold someone without blaming them for anything.

    Re: blaming/scodling his daughter

    The two aren't mutually implicative. For example, I blame the OP for the typo in the subject-line of this string, but nobody has scolded anyone.

    I find this mistake often among native Chinese speakers. It must have something to do with the translation.

    I used to be mistaken until I ignored the Chinese translations and read the English definitions.
