Since they have two entirely different meanings, I would agree with "about" in this context. By the way, your sentence isn't correct, Kenny ("This genre of thriller I felt bored was what she would scream about/at"). You've missed a connection between you being bored and her loving it. Here's how I would write it:Hello,
Should I use at or about to go with scream in the following sentence?
I prefer about to at. What would you use?
In your sentence, it can alos be written such as:What she would scream about was the genre of thriller that I felt bored.
I...cannot see the difference.What she would scream about was the genre of thriller that bored me.
I have to copy and paste your sentences because you put them in the quote boxes, Kenny. Here's your sentence:In my sentence, I think I can reverse it:
In your sentence, it can alos be written such as:
I...cannot see the difference.
I'm grateful for your assistance, Dimcl. Now I've got it.The problem with "I felt bored" is that there's no action. You felt bored about it. The only way that you could use "I felt bored" is if the sentence were reworded ie:
"What she would scream about was the genre of thriller that I felt bored about."
This isn't at all satisfactory, though, when you would normally say "that bored me".
