    get out of/from

    What's the difference between get out of and get out from?


    An alien got out of/from the UFO and walked down/along the street.

    Thanks a lot!

    "Get out from" is wrong in that context.

    What's the difference between 'he get out of the room' and 'he get out from the room'?

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: get out of/from

    As supporting Hiya and also I feel it's quite important for me to. Can somebody provide few examples for those two "get out of and get out from" preposition phrase? I mean like which contexts they are used differently in?

    Re: get out of/from

    Nearly all the COCA citations for 'get out from' are followed by 'under' - The boy got out from under the bed.

    Re: get out of/from

    Please check this context; "get out of the water or get out from the water" Which one is correct? It seems to me both are correct. But not sure. Your comment please.

    The natural thing to say is "get out of the water".

    "Get out of" is used very often but not "get out of water, isn't it?

    In most contexts the article is necessary.
