    Smile out of fear of mistaking

    Good evening teachers (and not),
    My doubt of the day is: what's the difference between "from" and "for", on a side, and "out of" on the other side?
    Waiting for your answer(s) I greet you
    Luigi

    Re: out of fear of mistaking

    Your thread title doesn't help us to work out what you are asking, scrooge.

    If there are two questions there please ask them in separate threads.

    If you are asking 'what's the difference between "from" and "for"?' there's no answer to that as they are completely different prepositions.

    It's like asking you to tell us the difference between two unrelated Italian prepositions like 'per' and 'da'.

    We want to help you; please try again.

    Smile Re: out of fear of mistaking

    Well, you are right. I have surely made my question in a wrong way. I meant: what's the difference between "for" and "out of"; and "from" and "out of".
    I hope it's enough clear.
    Thanks

    That doesn't really make a difference. Come with examples.

    well, the first example could be this one: she's pouring the tea from (out of) the kettle.
    I don't answer the question for (out of) fear of mistaking.Right?

    She is pouring the tea out of the kettle because it should never have been there in the first place. Her sister, who has more sense, is pouring her tea from the teapot into cups.
