    preposition

    Hello,

    What is the difference between them?

    -There is so much to talk about.

    -There is so much to talk.

    What if we didn't put 'about' after the verb 'talk'?

    Thanks...

    What if? I would consider it incomplete.

    Re: preposition

    I mean that I want to know if we must use example 1 or 2.

    -There is so much to talk about. But I don't want to do anything.

    -There is so much to talk. But I don't want to do anything.

    Re: preposition

    "There is so much to talk" is not a correct sentence.

    If you were talking to me and you said "There is so much to talk", I can tell you exactly what would happen. I would look expectantly at you, waiting for you to finish your sentence. It's not complete without "about".

    Re: preposition

    Say either 'There is so much to talk about' or 'There is so much to discuss'.

    (discuss = talk about)
