Which is correct "via/on/in/with a messenger"? or are there any shades of using different prepositions with a word MESSENGER ?


It would depend on what you wish to say. Without a specific example I will interpolate.

He told me this via a messenger. would explain how his news got to you. The news received would be in a message not in a messenger. You would be told the news with a message. Or something in addition to the message came with a messenger. I would say shades of meaning would be more useful to the word message than messenger.

  • I see, thanks. What about an example like this - "I talk to my friends via/on/in a messenger", meaning we are using a messenger to talk/ chat. – Liliya Ryaboshapko Dec 7 '18 at 8:00
  • It would be much the same. You communicate via/through a messenger. Give them news in/via a message. – Elliot Dec 7 '18 at 19:03
