Well, I'd like to hear a proffesional opinion about the usage of the following so-called Phrasal Verbs:
Famous of or famous for?
Bored of or bored with?
What I'd like to know is which of these are correct.
Also, I'd appreciate if you guys could help me with the following sentence:
She said that she's got heart problems and that she lost counsciousness right before I reached her.
Is there anything wrong with it?
Famous of may also be used.
eg. Celine Dion is the most famous of all her family.
She is famous for her singing ability.
Celine Dion is the most famous of all her family.
I find that a bit of a stretch frankly.
Who do you feel was the most famous of these singers, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin or Sammy Davis?
Which is the most famous of all the restaurants in New York?
Or were you implying that Celine isn't famous????
The questioner asked about phrasal verbs, 'famous for' falls into that category 'famous of'doesn't. For example 'look' takes many prepositions as a phrasal verb 'look if' isn't one of them but 'Please come and look if the water level has gone down' is correct.
