Some languages I know have separate verbs for giving good news and giving bad news about the future.
In English, we have a word that works fine for giving bad news of the future: warn. You warn about something bad that is going to happen.
But, is there a word for the opposite?
The word I am looking for is a word like "warn" but for good things. For example, "I [abc]ed him that he was going to be promoted" as opposed to "I warned him that he was going to be demoted."
In Arabic, there are the words بشَّر which means "to give good news" and انذر which means "to warn."
I found a related question but about nouns.
