What case would one be likely to use to translate "about"? In particular, if you were translating "talk about things", how would "things" be inflected? It sounds dativesque, but then how is it distinguished from "talk to things"?

(I'm actually trying to translate stuff into Quenya, but presumably answers from real languages will be useful...)
