    Post On top & on top of

    I had a student ask me what the difference was and I choked
    It seems as though the "of" is implied in On top. "Of all the groups, I'm on top." "The book is on top."

    Re: On top & on top of

    "See the pile of books over there? The book you want is on top."

    "The suitcases are stored away. The big one is on top of the wardrobe."

    = on top of (something)
