forbid from is unidiomatic. forbid X to Y is correct idiom.

I think that Forbid goes synonymous with inhibit, prohibit, prevent and exclude, and most importantly the differences are subtle and minute. I'd rather suggest trying to understand what form is "forbid" actually taking. That depends on the meaning being conveyed by the sentence.

The National Labor Relations Act | expressly prevents unions | from engaging in secondary boycotts against companies...... Does that sound any awkward? so answer must be A.

The new contract | prohibits a strike | by the transportation union. So again, answer must be A.

Hi,

I came across this in one of the sources I am referring to(the source is actually from a free downloadable material from one private institute,don't know if I can name it here)

Forbid one to do something…..
OR
Forbid one from doing something
Both are correct!!!!
“Forbid one to do something” is a little bit stronger (more imperative) than “Forbid one from doing something”—but both are correct.

:roll:

From what I read,I know that only forbid X to Y is in the accepted GMAT idioms list.

Please advise :?

Thanks!

regards

Thanks amit2k9.

So forbid from is unidiomatic.

The source that I referred to has an error I suppose.
