Hey, all! If there is a pit in(maybe other prepositions)the stone, how would you describe it? "a pit on top of the stone" is made my compatriot, but I think "a pit in the stone" makes sense. And we can also say "a pit in the ground". Then I googled it at Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA). And there seems to be both "a pit in the ground " and "a pit on the ground", but there is no expression like "a pit in the stone", "a pit on the stone", or "a pit on top of the stone". Would you please give me your answer?
