Abil:"Deprived of" or "deprived from"? Is the sentence below correct? I think it should be "barred".
Tamil Catholic devotees from Mannaar and Vavuniyaa were deprived from taking part in the mass, according to sources associated with the Church.
"Deprived from", on the other hand, is used to indicate some sort of prevention or hindrance in achieving a goal of some sort. "He was deprived from giving the exams which deprived him of his chance to go to college". Or in this instance, "deprived from taking part in the mass".
"Barred" would just be replacing the phrase with a synonym.
kalaris "deprived from taking part in the mass".Hi, kalaris.
You may well be right about this, but I've never heard the usage, and I don't find a reference which shows the word to mean "preventing" someone from doing something.
I'd go along with "deprived of participation in the service."
Best regards, - A.
Edit. Well, I'm embarrassed. There are 110,000 Google hits for "deprived from" (amid opinions that the usage is an error).
