Hi.

Is there any difference between talk to sb and talk with sb?

I feel that there are some contexts that one suits better than the other. Are they completely interchangeable?

Thanks

Usually, 'talk with' is used of extended discussion and 'talk to' is the mere event: 'Hello' is talking to someone.

Thank you Mister Micawber.

I have the same impression about these two phrases, I just couldn't utter it.

For example when I give some information to sb I talk to him, but talk with sb sounds like a conversation which indicates both sides are involved rather than one person talks and the other listens.

Thank you very much.
