    where v. when

    do you say:
    "i'm sensitive where it concerns you" or "i'm sensitive when it concerns you"?

    Re: where v. when

    Hello Mushu, welcome to Using English!

    Both would be understood; perhaps the "when" version would be more usual, in this context.

    You might want to play around with these idiomatic phrases:

    1. I'm ADJ when it comes to NOUN PHRASE.


    1a. I'm very sensitive when it comes to someone I care about, like you.

    2. I'm ADJ where NOUN PHRASE is concerned.

    e.g. (from Google):

    2a. I'm pretty ignorant where technology is concerned.
