When is it necessary to use "takut dengan"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kvcil

"takut dengan" , while is also the translation from "afraid of", it is usually followed by an object/noun.

ex: - My younger brother is afraid of dogs = Adikku takut dengan anjing

Although in everyday speaking, 'dengan' is rarely used here. You could also say "Adikku takut anjing" and still be correct.
