    Default Re: talk to/talk with good to/good for...

    1a) "talk to" (One speaker does most of the talking in the conversation)
    EX: I want to talk to you.
    1b) "talk with" (Both speaker share in the conversation)
    EX: I want to talk with you.

    2a) "good to" (Somebody treats somebody well)
    EX: She is good to me.
    2b) "good for" (Somebody or something benefits somebody)
    EX: It is good for me. /She is good for me.

    Synonyms

    3b) "talk to, talk with, talk about" (Utter sound)
