This came out of a casual conversation with a friend - and now all three sound correct to us; could someone please confirm if it’s correct to say - 1. I observed this about you, or 2. I observed this in you, or 3. I observed this of you


observe can mean "see, detect" or "say something in regard to". With of I'd take you to mean the latter, with in the former, and with about either.

  • Ahh, that means all three are correct; just different contexts? – Dee Mar 11 at 19:26
  • @Dee: Yes, that is right. – TRomano Mar 11 at 19:34
