Topic: Pull the plunger on
Posted: Thursday, December 13, 2018 1:03:14 PM
Thank you so much! So if we use "of", what would sentence mean?

Which meaning or sense of the preposition "on" is used here?
I am still confused about the use of preposition "of" and "on" in the context

Supporting the bottle, tip
the bottle upside down
and slowly pull the
plunger on the syringe,
until you have
withdrawn the
prescribed amount

Please explain the use of preposition "on" in "on the syringe", why can't we use the preposition "of" instead?

Thar, I am really sorry but I always find it difficult to identify the uncountable meaning.

Typical antipsychotic depot medication is part of a range of treatment and long-term care available for adults with schizophrenic illness & other psychoses
http://gmmmg.nhs.uk/docs/ip/Archived Shared Care Guideline for Typical Antipsychotic Depots.pdf
Please explain why don't we need "the" or "a" in "Typical antipsychotic..."
Medication is a countable noun
Typical , antipsychotic and depot are all adjectives
We are talking about specific: typical not any

When wildlife biologists talk about moles, they’re usually referring to the tiny, gray rodents that dig underground to find delicious earthworms. But when chemists talk about moles, they’re usually referring to a scientific term. The term ‘mole’ represents a number, in the same way the word ‘dozen’ represents 12 of something. In this case, one mole represents the enormous (and slightly strange) number, 6.02 x 1023.

Please explain the use of present progressive in "they are usually referring to..."
why can't we use present simple "they usually refer to...
