chatter of you

我在書上看到這句:

Whoever chatters to you will chatter of you.

我覺得後半chatter of you怪怪的,字典裡查不到動詞的chatter後面接of,這裡不是應該用about嗎?還是這裡的用法是約定成俗?

    Who chatters to you will chatter of you.

    【諺】 對你說人家壞話的人,也會說你壞話

    既是Proverb就像我們的成語一樣,是約定俗成的說法了。

    語法上來說,about也可以;不過of和to對仗比較漂亮。

    Whoever chatters to you will chatter of you

    類似 speak of 的用法, 提到

    They will mention you in their gossips.
