Q: Could you pull out the thorn? does this sound natural?
A: Seems like you're looking for the difference between "pull out the X" and "pull the X out" ^_^
they are usually both natural. I think, and this is strange, that "pull the X out" is usually said when the speaker knows WHERE the X is coming from. e.g. "Can you pull the plug out of that socket?" "Can you pull this thorn out of my paw?"
"Pull out the X" can also be used to mean just "take out the X," so a teacher might say to her class, "Please pull out your homework assignments." It would be correct but a bit unnatural to say "Please pull out your homework assignments from your backpacks," but completely natural to say "Please pull your homework assignments out of your backpacks."
Does that make sense?
