what comes to
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:38:29 am »
Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to say like this "What comes to your next sentence, I'd say.....". By the way, I know that there is an idiom "When it comes to....", but all the same, can I just say "What comes to..."?

Regards,
Arturas

No. That doesn't work. You really have to stay with the original idiom.

I agree with Darryl.

I think the word "when" is used in a very, very generic sense in this idiom, meaning "at any time or place at all".
