☆ talk ~ over ~について話す
“Talking something over” is a little different to just talking about something. It implies that you have discussed it in detail and with honesty. We usually talk over things like “problems”, “decisions”, and other things that are important.
Here are some example sentences showing the differences:
We talked about the movie as we ate dinner.
We talked the problem over as we ate dinner.
He wanted to talk about our plans for the weekend.
He wanted to talk our plans for the wedding over.
Let’s talk about it here.
Let’s go somewhere quiet and talk things over.
If you don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine.
If you don’t talk it over with me, I won’t be able to understand how you’re feeling.
As you can see, “talk something over” is used for more difficult or important situations, whereas “talk about something” is more lighthearted.
