Mia came out on/onto the roof.

Which one of "on" and "onto" is the correct preposition to use here? Is there a more natural to write the sentence?


Whenever there is some kind of movement or change in place use onto.

So here:

"Mia came out onto the roof."

Is correct.

However, without context the question seems to be kind of ambiguous.

  • This is true and "onto" is correct, but "came out on the roof" is so widely used that it would not be thought an error by most. Mar 27 '20 at 15:03
