Suppose the three contexts are
1. a book sits in a box.
2. a book sits on the top shelf of a book case.
3. a book sits on the ground
In context 1, if I removed the book from the box, it seems that I can write:
1a "I took out the book."
without appending "from the box" to the sentence.
Suppose, in context 2 I removed the book from the top shelf and put it on the ground. Suppose also in context 3, I bent down to grab the book off the ground and then held it in my hand while I was standing.
Can I write these to describe context 2 & 3, respectively?
2a "I took down the book."
3a "I took up the book."
