"About" is used in both formal and informal contexts, making it a more relaxed and common word in everyday language. For instance, "What do you know about him?" contrasts with "Regarding," which is often employed in formal or professional settings, signifying a direct reference to a topic. Example: "Regarding the meeting agenda, I have some suggestions."

When posing questions, "about" is frequently used, implying a broader range of discussion or inquiry. For instance, "What are your thoughts about the new project?" In contrast, "Regarding" is typically used in more targeted questions, focusing on a specific aspect. Example: "Regarding the budget, do we have enough funds?"

"About" functions as a preposition in many contexts, indicating a relation to something. Example: "This book is about ancient Rome." "Regarding," however, primarily serves as a preposition to introduce or specify the subject of discussion, often in written forms like emails or letters. Example: "Regarding your application, we have made a decision."

"About" can carry various connotations depending on its usage, including approximation ("It's about five o'clock") or involvement ("She's always about helping others"). "Regarding," however, maintains a more consistent connotation of formal reference or consideration about a specific topic. Example: "Regarding your proposal, we have some concerns."
