Contexts with "avertir"

Les Grecs inventèrent la virgule, non pour leur littérature mais pour leurs acteurs, pour les avertir de prendre une longue inspiration en préparation d'une longue phrase à venir ; une virgule représente donc une pause. The Greeks invented the comma, not for their literature but for their actors, to warn them to take a deep breath in preparation of an upcoming long phrase; thus a comma represents a pause.
Je vous ai suffisamment averti. I gave you fair warning.
Par exemple, si un professeur qui fume lui-même comme une cheminée avertit un étudiant parce qu'il fume, c'est une contradiction. For example, if a chain-smoking teacher cautions a pupil for smoking, that warning is self-contradictory.
