I've heard the following sentence twice (in 2 American movies):
" I don't want you talking with him! I want to talk with him"
Now, I'm wondering why the speaker uses the progressive form in the first sentence and jumps to the simple form in the second.
The meaning is essentially the same, so how can you explain the -ing?
'Talking' suggests to me that the speaker doesn't approve of the other person communicating at all with the other person.
