    at the end 最後,最終

    友人幫忙查了一下 "on the end" 解釋如下:

    他們是分開的

    it's coming on / the end of August

    不是

    it's coming / on the end of August

    come on 是 to start

    See Cambridge Dictionary

    to start to happen or work

    The heating comes on at six in the morning.

    2011-03-25 03:03:41 補充:

    因此 It's coming on the end of August

    是 it's the start of the end of August

    因為是夏天的尾聲所以才會接:

    Another summer's promise almost gone

    因此沒有On the end這種文法。

    論文可以寫: On the end of World War 2

    但這個on 是分開的

    On / the end of World War 2 = 論二戰的結束

    On the end of World War 2 =\= At the end of World War 2
