Just this afternoon I forgot what preposition to use for the noun weekend, even after I’ve written about this in an earlier post, so I thought of writing about it again. Just to remind myself. :)
As you know, we use on for a day of the week or for a date—we say on February 16 or on Friday—and that we use in for many other time references, such as in mid-September or in the ’70s. But what about weekend?
American English uses on the weekend, while British English uses at the weekend.
When we refer to the length of the weekend, we use for the weekend. Example: I will be away for the weekend.
Check out the entry at Merriam-Webster Learner’s Dictionary. Have a good weekend!
