1 cautionary advice about something imminent (especially imminent danger) [syn: monition, warning, word of advice]
gentle or friendly reproof
- Finnish: nuhde, nuhteleminen, huomautus, varoitus
for the author of a poem titled Admonition.
Admonition (or "being admonished") is a punishment under Scots law when an offender has been found guilty but is neither imprisoned nor fined but receives a verbal warning and is afterwards set free. The conviction is still recorded.
It is usually the result of either the strict application of law where no real wrong has been caused or where other circumstances (e.g. time already spent in custody or attending court) make further punishment unjust in the circumstances specific to the case involved.
