I am really confused regarding the usage of this word, squeeze.
I know it means to press something with fingers or extract liquid from something, but what bugs me is its usage:
Should it be followed with the object that you press, like an orange, or the liquid that you get after exerting pressure on the said object? Or perhaps both are OK?
For example, are both examples below correct?
Squeeze the orange for some juice.
Squeeze some juice out of the orange.
I already looked it up on the Collins dictionary (https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/squeeze). What I learned is that it can either be followed by the orange or the juice that is derived from squeezing the orange.
Still, when I wrote the following sentence in my essay,
Try slicing a peel off the orange, holding it above the balloon, and slightly squeezing some juice out of it.
my editor corrected it as:
...and giving it a squeeze until a few drips of juice squirt out.
Now I'm just really confused about the usage of this word.
Also, is there another way of expressing the same meaning, say, using a different verb?
