Pursuing this analogy further might help us to understand how voices change over a person’s life, with some growing older with the voice-hearer, others frozen in time.

What does with refer to in that sentence?


It refers to how voices change.

Another example would be: Answers given here will receive evaluations, with some being upvoted, others being downvoted. Here it lists the possible options for the evaluations.

In your sentence, some voices change by growing older, other voices will be frozen in time, and the with introduces these possibilities.

  • thank you! Is there any source including some information or example about such use of "with" as in the sentence above? – Hsn Jun 8 '18 at 18:50
