I want to describe the movement that a person sits up from a lying-down position, pivoting on his/her hip, and the upper body is sort of drawing a half circle in the air.
I know there exists “pivot around”, but I don’t think that’s exactly what I’m looking for.
Can I say “pivot up”? Does it exist or what do you suggest to use to describe that movement?
I searched around the Internet and didn’t see much information about “pivot up”...
Hope someone can help. Cheers. (:
