    This is your last warning/caution/reminder.

    Stay here and be quiet. This is your final warning/caution/reminder.





    My dictionary states that the above three words in bold are synonymous, but I suspect if they are really the same in the above sample. I sense there are different degrees of seriousness, right?

    Yep...usually only the first (warning) is used but I could see situations where you might want to lessen the seriousness...you have them in the right order from most to least.
