"Out of" vs "Out from" Is there any difference between these two expressions? I have never found a sentence with " out from" until now. I came across this sentence: The moon came out from behind the clouds. Perhaps "out of behind the clouds" could be used to. But it seems to me that in this particular case, "out from" is some kind of elegant.

"Out of" can be used several different ways. For example " we are out of steak" means we dont have any more steak. "the machine is out of order" means the machine is not working. "Johnny, get out of the box!" means to get out from being inside the box. "Out of" in that case assumes something was inside of some place. It would sound strange to say "Johnny, get out from the box", you would need to say "Johnny, get out from inside the box". Since "out from" means more to "get away from" than inside.

A person can "stand out from the crowd".
