Thread: window

  1. Unregistered


    I observe that many american authors use the phrase
    "look out the window'
    instead of saying "look out of the window".
    Is it grammatically correct? It looks so peculiar.

    Re: window

    It's an example of ellipsis (...).

    Ex: Look out (of) the window.
