    Talking 51-conflict

    Dear all

    Hello

    I have a question about the word (conflict). Can I use it with s.th or not in the following sentence?
    "Come into conflict with…"
    I know that it can be used with ( some body ) but is it used with (some thing) too?
    And another point, what does this sentence mean?

    Thanks a million

    Matilda

    You can come into conflict with people, things, ideas, etc.

    No difference at all- it depends on whether you have come into conflict with an indiviudal, a corporation, etc.
