    MSA, Levantine: He informed me of the problem

    MSA suggestion:
    أخْبَرْنِي بالمشكلة

    Levantine dialect suggestion:
    خَبَّرْنِي بالمشكلة

    Akhooha: are you sure عن can be used with the verb أخْبر? Page 262 of the 4th Edition of the Hans Wehr only allows بـ, not عن, as the preposition preceding the thing being notified of.
