    "At" tends to refer to a location; "on" tends to refer to a position. If the position is in the location, we can use either. "At the corner" and "on the corner" are sometimes/often interchangeable. We usually stand "on" the corner, not "at" the corner(position).But we meet "at the corner" (location) or "on the corner" (position).

    Mike, there is a mistake.

    :wink:
    Yes, you're right. That "position" should follow "on the corner".
