    Hang From, Off

    If I try to use the verb 'hang' in some situations:

    "A lantern hangs from/off a tree branch."
    "He is tall. So when he sleeps in his bed, his feet hang from/off the bed."

    Should it be 'from' or 'off' that comes after 'hang'?

    Re: Hang From, Off

    To the best of my knowledge, you can use "hang from" and "hang on" interchangeably. However, "hang off" means something else: to hold back; be averse.
