    Smile Which word?

    Whether we could reverse the order ask somebody something to ask something from somebody just like we do with teach,buy,send and hand over etc?

    Hi!

    I'm not a teacher.

    I can't find any collocation (words combination) of the preposition from and the verb to ask.

    You can ask about: The doctor asked me about my diet.

    You can ask for: He asked me for a pen.

    You can ask to: We asked them to the party.

    You can ask something of somebody: You asked a great deal of them.

    But I couldn't find anything like your "ask something from somebody".
