To/with prepositions with the verb speak/talk #1 (permalink) Mon Sep 11, 2006 15:52 pm   To/with prepositions with the verb speak/talk
 

Hello! How are you?

My question is:

"I spoke to/with you yesterday"

I know I can use both prepositions, but...
Can I use them as well when referring to
the verb "talk"?

"I talked to/with you yesterday in the evening"

Am I being grammatically correct?

Thanks indeed!

Hi Jes?s

Both prepositions are also used with "talk", but "to" is far more common. ;) :D
