|Dahak||Is there any difference between そのとき and Verb + ときに? "At the time" is just short for "At the time when."|| |
|dc||yes, they seem to be.|
at the time when (verb)
at that time...
at the time when i bought it, i thot it was expensive
at that time it was expensive
At that time, I thought it was expensive.
Basically use そのとき when you don't link the time (とき) to an action (verb).
|dc||seems like it. その時 is a standalone. |
当時 = at the designated time (more formal)
