    Post Talks/Talks about

    Is the sentence correct?

    She talks to much but what she talks has sense.


    I think, it should be 'She talks to much but what she talks about has sense.'

    Nearly, but a better way to say it is,

    She talks too much, but what she talks about makes sense.

    'She talks too much but what she says makes sense.'

    I'm pretty sure that's the intended meaning.

    In certain cases, the preposition is optional:

    Let's talk politics.
    Let's talk about politics.
