Is it correct to say, 'Be knowledgeable of' or 'Be knowledgeable about'? (As in, 'Be knowledgeable of the menu'.) (Staff must be knowledgeable of the menu).

1 Answer 1


The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary says:

'be knowledgeable about'

So do OAL, LAL (Longman Advanced Learners)

but 'of' does work fine in spoken English and I wouldn't mark it as an error.
