Quoting Ronglimeng (Reply 2): Does "admonish" have a different meaning in Edinburgh than the rest of the English-speaking world?
I read this in an English newspaper yesterday and wondered about it; I know that Scotland has a different legal sysytem to England, the most often mentioned being that they have three possible verdicts at a criminal trial unlike englands two; guilty, not guilty and not proven, the last appears to say "we know you did it but have no proof"
We really need a Scotsperson to tell us if "admonish" has a legal meaning and if so what.
