Should I say, "The man flipped the pancake." or "The man turned the pancake over"?
Are these the same?
flip the pancake
turn the pancake over
turn the pancake upside down
toss the pancake
If they are, then which one is more common?
And can we apply them to other objects. For example, "flip the iphone" or "turn the iphone upside down" or "turn the iphone over" or "toss the iphone"?
