Do we say "Nothing is compared with the Egyptian pyramids" or "Nothing is compared to the Egyptian pyramids"?
If both are correct,is either one favourable in general or in British or American English?
I made a grammatical change to the verb:
In regards to the use of compare to or compare with:
- "Nothing compares with the Egyptian pyramids."
- "Nothing compares to the Egyptian pyramids."
From the OED, either with or to is acceptable and my sense is both are used interchangeably with not much difference in AmE & BrE:
to compare: (a thing) for one to compare, (a thing) to be compared, comparable (to, with).
