Last(adv), at the end
Q:
1. Last(adv)
I don't know if it can mean "in the last point/place (this phrase is used to list a series of reasons, argument etc.". What do you think?


2. at the end
- is it true we MUST use it like the following structure?
at the end of something

- is it possible for me to use them in the sense of "at last"?

I'm not sure. There are too many verbs to test. In general though, here's the basic distribution for last (adv.):

EX: S/he ate last. (i.e., the last person to eat)
EX: S/he last ate... (i.e., the last time she ate was...)

EX: S/he ate at last. (i.e., s/he ate, finally ~ in the end)

All the best, :D

Relating to "last(adv)", what I actually asked is:
whether last = in the last point/place (when listing)
Eg:
In the last place, I would like to thank to Casiopea.

Can I replace it with "last(adv)"

It's probably best if tdol and the others answer your questions from now on.

All the best, and good luck in your studies. :)

From now on... sound like you will no longer answer my questions in any forum.
