Is it right to say "She accused him for breaking her glasses" or we should always use the preposition "of"(She accused him of breaking her glasses")/Thank you


1 Answer 1


It is not correct to use "accuse" with "for". The preposition "of" must be used at all times:

  1. The surgeon was accused of negligence.
  2. Are you accusing me of lying?
