    Don't swear him." OR "Don't swear at him."

    My dear and respected teachers

    1: "Whoever resigns or gets demoted, will be removed from the list below." OR "Whover resigns or gets demoted will be removed from the list below." ?

    2: "Don't swear him." OR "Don't swear at him." ?

    3: "I'm suffering from dysentery." ?

    Hi, Anglika my good teacher

    Can't I use 'get' ?
    Please explain so that I may make correct sentences.

    Thanks!

    Avoid "get" if you can. It is often a lazy way of saying something. At school we were given exercises to replace "get" with more specific and precise verbs and therefore I replace it wherever I can.
