This Week's Preposition


She accused me of poisoning her husband.
Are you afraid of spiders?
I often dream of you.


  1. Can you say `I often dream with you`? and do these both sentences mean the same?

  2. "Dream with you" is a very different concept from "dream of you". The former means that I have the same dreams or (unrealistic) desires as you, for example, you and I might both dream of a perfect world. "Dream of/about you" means that I think about you and I want you. It can also mean that I see you in my mind when I'm sleeping. Hope this helps.
