Wouldn’t dream….

Post by SARDORBEK » Fri May 25, 2012 5:23 am

I wouldn’t dream of letting strangers look after my own grandfather!

In the expression beginning “wouldn’t dream…”
can we use "about" instead of the preposition “of” from grammatical point of view?

Many thanks…

No. It is a fixed idiom.
