"associated with"

If an animal has some kind of ability that only human beings have such as being able to do math, can I say that they have skills “associated with” humans? Does “associated with” mean the same as “like”?

I suddenly realized something. Does it mean “used by”?


This expression means connected to/with.


So if these animals could do math and use human languages, can I say that they have skills “connected to” humans?

:slight_smile: associated with? be used to ?
in my opinion , it may means have some close relations to human e.g.dogs cats… :wink:

I like normally associated with, Cooliegirly.
