The preposition of place
What is the correct preposition to precede a village, district or division, "in or at"?
1. Alec is living at Kampung Berangan. (village)
2. Many unexplained things have happened at Lawas. (a district town)
3. At Limbang (division), people have been living in harmony despite the racial differences.
The state that I'm living in is divided into nine divisions. In each division, there are districts governed by different councils.
Re: The preposition of place
We'd use 'in' for all three in BrE. You might occasionally hear 'at' if the name of the town, district, etc happened to be the name of the railway station or airport.
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
