    Re: bewilder

    Hi Teia ,you can be bewildered by or about something
    similarly---- you can be confused by or about something
    ( as adjectives)

    As a verb --- His silence had bewildered/ confused her.

    I was reading my book and found 2 examples:

    1. I looked at him in such bewilderment that he vibrated with silent laughter.


    2. And ten minutes later a third ( telegram) , more bewildering.
