    On the corner of the earth.

    Hello!
    Is it right to say: ON the corner of the earth ?
    Thanks!

    Re: On the corner of the earth.

    As far as I know, the Earth doesn't have any corners (unless someone changed it from a globe/sphere to a cube while I wasn't looking!)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: On the corner of the earth.

    The idiom the four corners of the earth/world is common enough, but it doesn't work in any other variation.
