Break up with or break up on
Usually i use "break up with somebody", is it appropriate to use "break up on somebody"? If yes, could you tell me the difference?
wha-wha-what did you say?
oh, you're breaking up on me…
sorry, i cannot hear you, i'm kinda busy.
Re: Break up with or break up on
In the (telephone) conversation you've given, "breaking up" means that the phone line has a fault in it, or static. "You're breaking up on me" means "your voice is coming and going" and has nothing to do with ending a relationship with someone (which is what the other term means).
