    at the office

    1-We know him at the office.
    2-We are talking about him at the office.

    3-We know John at the office.
    4-We were talking about John at the office.

    Can one ever use these sentences if "him/John at the office" in them is supposed to mean "how he/John is at the office"?

    In such a reading, "at the office" would be postmodifying "him/John".

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
