Hi Folks,

Which is correct -- or are they both correct, just depends on one's personal speech idiosyncracies?

I log on / I log onto my account / I am logging on now / My log-on was successful.

I log in / I log into my account / I am logging in now / My log-in was successful.

On the other hand, I understand that if I say "I am in Okinawa", I identify Okinawa as a political prefecture of Japan. If I say "I am on Okinawa", I identify Okinawa as an island in the Western Pacific on which I live.

So -- bring it on ... or in?

@Seizan,
Both sets are correct forms of proper speech.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks!

Now I have to decide which fits best into my writing style. I just want to be consistent...

@Seizan,
When you speak other languages and translate it back it sounds like broken English sometimes. It is more of a problem of adding words that does not need to be added just to sound "civilized".

Beyond that how you speak is how you speak and write
