    take a fancy to... / take a fancy of...

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me in plain English the difference between the following two expressions?

    To take a fancy to…
    To take a fancy of….

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: take a fancy to... / take a fancy of...

    "To take a fancy to…" = become fond of, especially without an obvious reason.


    "To take the fancy of…."/ "To catch someone's fancy" = to appeal to someone
