How to use turn on in a sentence?

  1. Pacfique Niyomwungeri:

    I never saw ballet before. It was the first time I saw people turn on their toes.

  2. Skylee Campbell:

    It was adorable. They had us all turn on our call lights to light up the aisle and play music.

  3. Nela Richardson:

    You think about all these companies trying to turn on the lights at full capacity at the same time, there are some dislocations in the jobs market because everybody's hiring at the same time.

  4. President Donald Trump:

    We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on -- and in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it, and you don't get any water, you turn on the faucet and you don't get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out. Just dripping out, very quietly dripping out. People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once.

  5. Joe Schrank:

    We think of addiction as this light switch you can turn on and off, what we're learning is that for some people, it's similar to scuba diving: You can only come up 20 feet so often or you get very, very sick. When people stop immediately and that abruptly, it really makes them vulnerable.
