What are some ways that language can be used to perform the act of giving someone a warning?

  • Language Studies -

    Watch out!
    Don't do that -- or else!
    Be careful!
    There's a bear over there!

  • Language Studies -

    I suppose these work. I think I am putting more thought than necessary into this question. Thanks for your insight!

  • Language Studies -

    You're welcome. Most warnings are expressed in very few words.

    Also --
    Storm warning! Take cover!

  • Language Studies -

    I used to say to my own children and still say to my grandchildren, "STOP!"

    That one word makes them stop and turn and look at me -- and then I can explain myself. I found out that with young children, if they're walking (or running!) into danger, first you have to stop them; then you can explain.
