Hello,

At point ...

Hi Onsen.

Since I have never heard 'on' a sigh before, I checked Oxford Collocations Dictionary online. This came up: "Can not find on a sigh in the collocation dictionary".

So I don't know where you got your information.

I would use 'with a sigh' but 'in a sigh' is not incorrect.

Thank you very much, Hope123, for your reply.
