    on/at the side of something

    Hello!

    Which is correct: "At the side of the bag" or "on the side of the bag"?

    Is there a difference between "at the side of smth" and "on the side of smth"?

    What does your title mean and what has it got to do with your question?

    Please write 'something' in full.

    The title should have been: "on the side of smth" or "at the side of smth". I pasted the wrong title by accident.

    Which sentence is correct:
    "You can find a rain cover at the side of your bag."

    "You can find a rain cover on the side of your bag."


    Is there a difference between "at the side of smth" and "on the side of smth"?

    With at it means "next to". With on it means "attached to".

    Please don't use non-standard abbreviations on the forum. Write something, not "smth".

    I have amended the thread title.
