Translation of with in Spanish:
When the translation con is followed by the pronouns mí, ti, and sí, it combines with them to form conmigo, contigo, and consigo: come with me ven conmigo; take it with you llévalo contigo; he had his dog with him tenía el perro consigo. with often appears as the second element of certain verb structures in English ( come up with, get away with, reckon with, etc). For translations, see the relevant verb entry ( come, get, reckon, etc).
