LA Guy Posted July 26, 2011 at 05:17 AM Report Share Posted July 26, 2011 at 05:17 AM Hi folks, As a native speaker, I just realized I didn't understand the grammar rules for: Put the water bucket back in the corner ( of the room ) please. ( the bucket is resting in the corner ) But I was asked why it shouldn't be Put the water bucket back at the corner please. Put the water bucket back on the corner please. Hmmmm ? Well.... The people are waiting on the corner ( of the street ). ( they are "standing on" the corner ) Meet me at the corner of the intersection of Main and 1st streets. So how would you explain this stuff ? Thanks, LA Guy ( who is NOT an English teacher ) :rolleyes: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
