Following a discussion on Russian facebook page, will you say "...hook from which a body hangs" or " ... hook on which a body hangs". The claim was that both ways are acceptable, is it right?
One subtle difference is whether the object is directly attached to the hook:
- A fish is hanging on a hook. (The hook is physically in the fish.)
- A mountain climber is hanging from a hook in the cliff. (A rope connects them.)
- A jacket is hanging on a hook.
- A flowerpot is hanging from a hook in the ceiling.
