    about and of

    Hello, Teachers.

    I have been confued about some commonly used pairs of phrases for a very long time, such as think about/of, hear about/of, know about/of, and dream about/of.
    How to understand the difference between about and of in such phrases?
    It would be very nice if I could share your views and exprience.

    Thank you in advice.

    To think/dream about someone/something is to go into the details whereas to think/dream is to approach the subject as a whole even though fleetingly without going into the details.
