Common mistake bored of (with)

Bored of (with)

In standard English, it is more accepted to use "bored with" or "bored by" instead of "bored of."

Using "bored of" is a common mistake that many people make, but it is not grammatically correct. The correct prepositions to use after "bored" are "with" or "by."

Here are some examples to illustrate the correct usage:

  • I am bored with this movie.
  • He was bored by the lecture.
  • She is always bored with her job.

These examples show that we use "bored with" or "bored by" to express our feelings about something that we find uninteresting or dull.

It's important to pay attention to these small details of grammar to ensure that our communication is clear and accurate. Making the mistake of using "bored of" instead of "bored with" or "bored by" can make our speech or writing sound incorrect or less educated.
