Difference between "over" and "on" Hi all, The question is: "All the employees at SEI Corporation are invited to the meeting _____ the new internal communications system that the company is about to bring in." A: at B: with C: over D: on The answer from book is "on" and I agree with it. However, when I check Oxford: http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/over_2 At the meaning no. 12, it says that "over" can also mean "about something". So I wonder if we can use "over" in this sentence. Is there any difference between "on" and "over" in this case? Thanks all.

It depends on the verb. E.g. They were quarreling over how to get the job done.
