Hi,

The buildings were first assessed in respect to historical interest, architectural merit, group value, social value and local interest, authenticity and rarity.

1. My dictionary has 'with respect to' and 'in respect of', but not 'in respect to'. Is that phrase common?

2. Is there any difference between 'with respect to' and 'in respect of'?

Opponents should not rule out the prospect that talented architects can alwayts inject new life to the site by incorporating Central Market in innovative designs.

There is no immediate prospect of peace.

There is a resonable prospect that his debts will be paid.

3. Can I change 'prospect' to 'possibility' in the three sentences above?

Not common, but it doesn't give me much heartburn.

I don't see any real difference.
