    "At four o'clock" or without "at"

    Hello.

    Can I omit "at" in my sentence?

    "See you on Saturday, four o'clock."

    Re: "At four o'clock" or without "at"

    You can even omit "on" in casual speech. These all work:

    See you on Saturday at four o'clock.
    See you on Saturday at four.
    See you Saturday at four o'clock.
    See you Saturday at four.
    See you Saturday - four o'clock.

    Note the dash in the final example. There would be a clear break between "Saturday" and "four o'clock" when spoken aloud.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
