Assunto:  The case against which and to which
 
Mensagem:  PP, have we built up a case of "against which" or of "to which", which do we mean in the first place?

Just for the records, I have seen the verb compare used with against as well as with to but not with both at the same time.It cannot possibly share two prepositions at the same time in a single, short statement, the case against which and to which clearly proving too heavy a case to carry around.It seems to me that we cannot take the horse to the water and make it drink it. And still have it compare notes, what do you think?
