    中文可以說 「某人不在,留個 message 給他的秘書」,但其實細細想,這留言不是要 「給」 秘書,這 message 是要給 Mr. Wang,只是請秘書轉達而已,所以英文用 left a message with,就是指這個請「代轉」 的意思:

    Since Mr.Chang was not in his office, I left a message with his secretary.


    with 是 「在一起」,這裡意思是留了個 message 與她的秘書 「在一起」。也就是在她那裡,目的是請他轉達。

    to 有 「對象」 或 「到」 的意思,我們可以「寄送」、「電郵」 訊息 「到」 他的秘書那裏:

    send a message to his secretary

    email a message to his secretary

    秘書在這裡是我們送訊息的對象,可以用 to。 但 Mr. Wang 不在,她的秘書不是留言的對象,拜訪者只是留口信在她那裡,請她轉達而已,所以要用 with。

    to 本身沒有與的意思喔

    with 才有

    I left a message with his secretary.

    to 通常是幫助動詞的

    with 是在一起的意思

    所以用to 會不順
