    Re: remind and remind of

    They are both wrong. Remove "for" from the first and it will be correct. The second is just wrong. Forget it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Then under what situation shall we use "remind....of"? Let me try.

    May I remind you of the situation that he will fail the test if he doesn't work hard?

    Thanks.

    Re: remind and remind of

    There are several ways to use "remind ... of", all in different contexts.

    You remind me of my sister.
    I would like to remind you of that time we climbed Mount Everest.
    I want to remind you of the situation - you will be fired if you don't work harder.

    Your suggested sentence in post 3 will work if you lay it out like my third example. It doesn't work as it is.
