|Assunto:||To lie in a hammock / to fall|
You lin IN a hammock, OK? If the opposite of in is out of, so you fall OUT OF a hammock?
I've googled this and found both OFF and OUT OF, but there are morre occurrences for OUT OF...Is to fall OFF a hammock OK, too?
The problem is with what you envision: Do you lie on your bed or in your bed?
If you lie on your bed , you fall off it .If you lie in it , you fall out of it.
You lie on a sofa, on the floor but normally in a hammock, in a ditch etc.
You can be in a coma and come out of it.
You can also come out of Africa if you have been deep inside it.
