It strikes me that the way we use 'with' is more complex than we may think. So I have two questions:
- Can the preposition 'with' be used to mean 'about' or 'in relation to'? (sentence a and b). And also:
- Can the preposition 'with' be used as 'among' (sentence b)
a) ... because in a moment, we need to get back to my point with Eliot
b) He has become very popular with the people
c) The world has not responded in ways similar to what we have seen with other crises like the Hawaiian earthquake
These sentences are taken from public lectures 'with' well established writers and political commentators.
