    Unhappy On

    Hi,
    RonBee told me that he guesses that the sentence: she went to the theatre "on the underground" means "by subway".
    I have read that the preposition on is just used to indicate the presence of a person inside the vehicle and not the waz zou get somewhere.
    Is the my interpretation completely wrong? I thought they meant that the theatre was placed on the underground.
    Bye Rip.

    Re: On

    "they went to the theater on the subway"

    can be paraphrased

    'they went on the subway'

    which means that, yes, they were inside the vehicle

    no contradiction there
