ambience is a synonym of atmosphere

noun [ am-bee-uhns ]

ambience is another word for atmosphere

The word atmosphere has a few meanings. When we talk about the earth's atmosphere, we mean the gaseous envelope surrounding the planet. But when we talk about a tense atmosphere or an atmosphere of impending war, we are describing a different kind of atmosphere, that is, a surrounding or pervading mood or environment. Atmosphere is useful for talking about mental or psychological environments as well as physical ones. The synonym ambience is almost always used to talk about physical surroundings, specifically a pleasant or luxurious quality, tone, or mood of a particular environment or milieu. The term is often used in the context of restaurants, many of which seek to cultivate the perfect ambience for a memorable dining experience.

admonish is a synonym of warn

verb [ ad-mon-ish ]

admonish is another word for warn

The verbs warn and admonish both imply attempting to prevent another from running into danger or getting into unpleasant or undesirable circumstances. To warn is to speak plainly and usually in strong terms: She warned him of the dangers that lay ahead. To admonish is to caution, advise, or counsel. This synonym suggests giving earnest, authoritative advice with only tacit references to danger or penalty. A judge might admonish jurors not to discuss a trial outside of the courtroom. This verb can also mean "to reprove or scold, especially in a mild and good-willed manner"— and often an admonition is a little bit of both: part warning, part scolding, as in the case of a teacher who admonishes a student about excessive noise.

Commonly found as

gently admonish
The professor gently admonished the student for his sloppy research, reminding him that he would have to take a much more rigorous approach to the material if he wanted to get published in an academic journal one day.
judge + admonish
As one juror dosed off and another’s eyelids were beginning to droop, the judge admonished the jury to stay alert during the entire trial.
