I thought this was really funny and wanted to find out more about the usage of "turn over" and so I googled and I found thisNow, if you don't turn over the pancake on the count of ten, we are going to barge in.
I find this really interesting! Especially after the examples that Velisarius gave. Is this a case of "because native speakers say it this way" or are the reasons to why the preposition goes after the verb or at the end of the sentence. I am not sure if Bagsensei will provide more details but I'm very interested in what you said and hope you will explain a little more, RedwoodGrove.You have a linguistic question.
Turn the pancake over.
Is almost always correct and idiomatic, but not always.
