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

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

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

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


I asked a similar question yesterday. This one is similar but not the same.
