2. The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48
Admonition \Ad`mo*ni"tion\, n. [OE. amonicioun, OF. amonition,
   F. admonition, fr. L. admonitio, fr. admonere. See
   Gentle or friendly reproof; counseling against a fault or
   error; expression of authoritative advice; friendly caution
   or warning.
   [1913 Webster]

   Syn: Admonition, Reprehension, Reproof.

   Usage: Admonition is prospective, and relates to moral
          delinquencies; its object is to prevent further
          transgression. Reprehension and reproof are
          retrospective, the former being milder than the
          latter. A person of any age or station may be liable
          to reprehension in case of wrong conduct; but reproof
          is the act of a superior. It is authoritative
          fault-finding or censure addressed to children or to
          [1913 Webster]
