"In Wisconsin, a prison forbade a prisoner from ordering the Physician’s Desk Reference" rendered into proper English would read "In Wisconsin, a prison forbade a prisoner to order the Physician’s Desk Reference."


Yes, I believe the correct idiom in English is "prohibit from" and "forbid to". Anyway, I wonder what would happen if postcards that carry short messages were sent to prisoners. Would the jail restrict such postcards?
