Who is that girl in the corner chatting to Penelope?

Hi,

Does "chatting to" in the above sound right? Do I have to change it to "chatting with?" Thanks.

"With" is the proper preposition.

I think both work:
chatting to : shows more of the direction of chatting, say from him to her
chatting with: shows the group, the association
For many, the above distinctions are irrelevant.

You were right, 'chatting to' is perfectly ok here as a 'verb preposition' colocation, it sounds more natural than 'chatting with'.
