Hola!!!
Quisiera saber que omite el apóstrofe en O'clock
Y una cosita más, ¿o'clock sirve para decir "en punto"?
O sea
5 O'clock---> 5 en punto
sino, ¿cómo se dice?
Muchas gracias

    5 o'clock sharp
    5 o'clock on the dot
    exactly 5 o'clock
    right at 5 o'clock

    Hi Alc!! O'clock = of the clock ;)


    o'clock
    c.1720, abbreviation of of the clock, from M.E. of the clokke (1389). Attested from 1904 in ref. to direction (by shooters, fighter pilots, etc.).

    Hey, I have a different question. Is there even the slightest difference between saying:
    it's eight
    and
    it's eight o'clock

    ?

    thanks :)
