除了「聽說」,hear of 還另有意思?

我藉由CAMBRIDGE Advanced Learner's Dictionary查詢「hear of」的意思,看到了兩種不同的解釋,如下:

▼hear of sth, If someone says they will not hear of something, they mean they will not all-

       ow it, usually when you want to do something good for them.

       e.g. I wanted to pay but she wouldn't hear of it.

  

▼hear of sb/sth, If you have heard of someone or something, you know that person or thi-

        ng exists.

        e.g. I'd never heard of him before he won the prize.

 

  

很明顯地,第二種即譯為「聽說...」

想請問清楚的人,第一種可被譯為什麼?

「不允許(幫自己)」嗎?
