    to take something under control

    Hi, everyone.
    I already know we can say 'to keep/have/get/bring something under control', but I wonder if it's OK to say 'to take something under control'.
    We already have structures like 'to take control of something', but I couldn't google the phrase 'to take something under control'.
    Incidentally, would you be so kind to suggest some other verbs that can be used in 'verb + something under control'.
    Thank you very much.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.

    Re: to take something under control

    No, we don't say 'to take something under control'.

    You've already covered the verbs preceding 'under control'.
