From a recent conversation. A response to my saying that I've always found dictionaries interesting: I'd like to know what range of meaning the construction det er . . . med . . . can have. All of these would fit the context of the original conversation: Yes, it's interesting about dictionaries ("dictionaries" is an interesting subject; what you said about them is interesting). Yes, it's interesting with dictionaries (the experience of dealing with dictionaries is interesting; the effect that buying a new one has on someone is interesting). Yes, dictionaries are interesting (dictionaries themselves are interesting things). Which of these can the original expression mean? And is is the range of interpretations of det er <adjective> med <noun> similar with different adjectives?
