Do we "live in a vineyard" or "on a vineyard"? Grammarly says "in."
in a vineyard
I am also from Pakistan. Paypal account does not work in Pakistan then how you recieve your payment. Tell me Thanks.
Hey there, the discussion focus on a grammartically correct sentence, using the word 'in' or 'on' But is it not too early to digress to Paypal? Anyway, you're welcome.
It depends on what you mean.:
"Susan lives in a vineyard in California"
"Susan lives on a vineyard in California"
The first suggests that the vineyard is her residence.
The second suggests that her residence is within a vineyard.
Grammarly is also suggesting that I should use "in·. But Grammarly is not infallible.
I see. It's almost like splitting hairs. When I think of "on," I see it as on the land, not "in" the land. Would you say, "I lived in an island" or "on an island."?
In an abandoned shack on an island.
Or: There was no abandoned island when I was on the island.
I always ponder that usage, yet I also consider 'at'. Do I live at Calif or in Calif. Below is what the English Club says about it. Though reading that I still ponder usage
Prepositions of Place: at, in, on

Thanks for sharing. Using "at" seems awkward because it means arriving at a point or destination. I noticed "on" means on a surface, so I'd use that to say, "I am on the vineyard."
I used the standard British English in writing my articles. But Grammarly, which is formatted in American English, seems not to agree with the British style. Curiously, look at the sentence: 'I live at the Moley Vineyard'. Is the 'at' a good substitute for 'in' or 'on'? Just asking.
I am beginning to believe they are interchangeable. It depends on how well it reads.
They's nothing to believe. They's something to note or understand. And, these notes should come out of an English workshop say, at an international level. Then, only then that it would be easy to state as in 1+1=2, or 1+1=10...any statement that would grammatically and universely be accept.
I hear you. In most cases, I'd leave it up to the editor, but on HubPages, it's up to the writer first.
Unless it's a commercial entity/property maybe? We live on a farm, but in a garden.
Interesting, I want to write "on" because "in" seem more indoors than outdoors or not as spacious.
Interesting discussion. English is a very funny language since it has been transformed into new versions (such as Hunglish, Spanglish, Hinglish, etc.) after being slaughtered in a thousand different ways in different regions of the world. Even English speakers are confused and discussing which words to use in, on, at, and so on. Enjoying it!
I agree that Grammarly isn't always correct and sometimes make some really dumb mistakes.
Blessings to all!
I agree. These little words can grab all your attention thanks to their many definitions.
Well, Kenna if we go as per how we say for any country, for example," we live in India", "We live in Norway" and so on, then it makes sense to say "we live in a vineyard".
That makes sense. What about I spent my youth... or weekend... it still applies?
We live in India on planet Earth in the Solar System in the Milky Way Galaxy in the local galaxy cluster in the Universe.
I am with you on that one!
I think think this is one grazy way of speaking?
I think so Kenna."I spent my youth in Norway" makes sense I believe.
Just read https://hubpages.com/faq/ thoroughly and you will get most of your answers. The help is one of the best I have found on any platform so far.
No, my clients have guidelines structure that they/I follow. I have never seen a HubPages editor change my prepositions.
Where or how does the 'In' comes in?
Well, some of us do.
Can I add a further complexity to our crazy language?
Why do we say "the" flu and not the appendicitis?
Why do we refer to tuna "fish" and not sole fish?
Isn't this fun?
Oh yeah! Besides, it's unpredictable! There are too many exceptions to the rule.
It sure is a crazy language. Here in Australia we just say tuna, not tuna fish.
The calender could not make better sense than calender? Why the English language is that crazy? Don't ask Rupert, ask me! It's because it had no spare parts. It's borrowing from other foreign languages is too much. Can anyone here find an English word for 'baptism'?

Hello! I am new to HubPages, and I want to know more authors here. I want to learn more about what can help or hurt different authors.So, grammar!

Just had to go through a ton of edits made by HP editors. A lot needed correction. For example, the editor changed the word 'over' to 'cover'. And in another, they'd capitalised 'tarot' throughout. As I have Grammarly, it became obvious that they accepted Grammarly's suggestions willy-nilly without...

Anyone else using Grammarly feels that the sentence correction (or rephrase, as they call it), makes the sentence more professional or robotic-sounding than entertaining? This is especially when you are writing a novel or a story. The sentence correction mostly seems to remove the human element and...
