- I saw the man with the telescope/through the telescope.
I cannot understand. Should I use 'through a telescope' or 'with a telescope'? I see the usage with 'though' in Longman and Oxford Dictionaries, but I see some using the usage with 'with' in the forums, for example: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/th...-ambiguous-why
I would like to ask both are OK?
When you say you saw the man through the telescope there is no ambiguity.
When you say you saw the man with the telescope, who has the telescope?
