Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Ad`mo*ni"tion\, n. [OE. amonicioun, OF. amonition,
F. admonition, fr. L. admonitio, fr. admonere. See
{Admonish}.]
Gentle or friendly reproof; counseling against a fault or
error; expression of authoritative advice; friendly caution
or warning.

Syn: {Admonition}, {Reprehension}, {Reproof}.

Usage: Admonition is prospective, and relates to moral
       delinquencies; its object is to prevent further
       transgression. Reprehension and reproof are
       retrospective, the former being milder than the
       latter. A person of any age or station may be liable
       to reprehension in case of wrong conduct; but reproof
       is the act of a superior. It is authoritative
       fault-finding or censure addressed to children or to
       inferiors.
