Could you please shed some light on this?
I would to know if there is an variant for 'get out' in the following context:
Get out the car - remove the car from the garage, eg.
Get out of the car - exit the car.
Well... this seems to be correct American English, I wonder if it is the same in British English.
Let me be honest, 'get out of the car' sounds a bit odd to me.
No offenses meant.
You will hear people say things like I am going to get out the car at the lights.in BrE, but I'd say it was an omission rather than an alternative form.
I'll add it.
It is quite interesting, because I was told that ...
The car drove off of the bridge! is correct but the of is unnecessary, while
The car drove off the bridge! sounds much better
But... of course, there's no point in comparing them with the 'get out' and 'get out of' differences.
Off of is quite common, but it is unnecessary.
