Which preposition(s) can be used with “sentiment” in the following context?
The general public’s sentiment [preposition] environmental issues changed over time.
I am aware of the following options, but am not sure which to use, whether any is appropriate, or whether this list is exhaustive:
- sentiment about an issue
- sentiment towards an issue
- sentiment on an issue
- sentiment concerning an issue
As far as I understand sentiment for would express something close to a feeling of pity, rather than the more general concept of emotions people express in relation to a topic.
