Synonyms of "Accuse" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre accuse e blame ?
A: They are similar. If you accuse someone it is more serious and direct because you want the other person to know. She accused him of lying = She told him that she thought he was lying. Blame is never used in a courtroom (accuse is used) and the person doesn’t always know. She blames her father for her red hair = She inherited her red hair from her father (her father has red hair also). You would not say she accuses her father for her red hair.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre to accuse e to blame ?
A: Difference 1: Grammar. You "accuse someone OF something", you "blame someone FOR something"/"blame something ON someone".
E.g. "Mary accused Bill of murder"
"Mary blamed Bill for the murder"
"Mary blamed the murder on Bill"

Difference 2: "Accuse" has to be an external action, declaring that someone is responsible for something. "Blame" can just be the belief that someone is responsible, you don't have to declare it.
E.g. "Anthony blamed Susan for the crime, but he would never accuse her publicly"

Difference 3: It's subtle, but you normally "accuse" someone of an act, whereas you "blame" them with the consequence of an act.
E.g. "John accused the factories of causing pollution"
"John blamed factories for the heavy pollution"

You're right that the distinction can get blurry here.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre accuse e blame ?

Q: Qual é a diferença entre accuse e blame ?
