Is there an order in which sentences with the adjective "rife" should be constructed? For example, searching for "rife" in Google gives the following example under the definition:
"male chauvinism was rife in medicine" Google
Can the sentence be turned around to the following form?
"Medicine was rife with male chauvinism"
Are the two meanings equivalent? Are they exactly the same? Is one favoured over the other?
In general, are "x is rife with y" and "y is rife in x" equivalent and both correct? [If only one question is allowed, then this last one if key.]
