Could someone please explain the difference (if any) with some examples?
Anonymous:One expert explains this way: (l) talk with = two people speak with each other on an equal basis. For example: May I speak/talk with you about a problem I'm having? (2) talk to = one person does most of the talking. Example: The president will speak to the nation tonight. Example: Oh, you say my son caused some problems? I shall talk to him tonight = I shall give him orders to behave himself. If you said, "I shall speak with him," it might = he and I shall talk so that I can hear his side of the issue.
