Supposedly, you are not to end a sentence with a preposition, but that rule
may be broken in some instances. However, when it comes to the word "at", it
should not be broken, on most cases.
For example:
Is this where we are at? My name is not AT.
Where are you at? Ditto above.
What is wrong with the word at? O.K., that one may work!
Another example: where did you get that at? What is an AT?

Of course, I just broke my own rule by using AT at the end of my answers. Does
anyone see my point? Or should I go back in to the shadows to lurk again? :)

Defiance, OH
