Can the preposition at in the following sentence be replaced by with?

I'm mad at you.

In my mother tongue we say that we are mad with someone, not at.

Best Answer

In English you are "mad at" a person, institution, etc. You wouldn't say you are "mad with" them.

Inconsistently, you are "angry with" a person, not "angry at" them.
