I have seen a book that uses preposition in for legs and face (in face/ in leg). Is it safe to assume that preposition in is used for parts of the body? If not, please give me some guidelines.
I'm afraid that a good bit of it is idiomatic, Vladz, but the preposition depends on the content-- does it seem more 'in'side the body part or 'on' the surface?--
