Interested in Language
I have come across some phrasal verbs that, the book where I have found them out says they are all synonyms of "to depend on/upon"...they are:
to ride on, to hang on/upon, to hinge on...
Do you really use them as synonyms of "depend on" in everyday's English? Are they all used by native speakers or do you prefer to use "depend on" instead?
not a teacher
Yes, they are all used to some degree to express various nuances of "to depend on/upon", or just for variety.
"Our future careers are riding on the success of this show".
"The outcome of the war can hang/hinge on the result of a single battle".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
