Could you please tell me which one is correct? at death or in death? For instance, in this sentence:

He was unlucky in/at death.

Thanks!

I wouldn't use either. I would say something like:
-He suffered an unlucky death.

Still...Americans don't describe death as being unlucky...unfortunate, yes...unlucky...no.
Thank you!
Can we say "He had the same problem at death as he had had in life: a stubborn soul." ?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Yes! 'At' is definitely the right choice here. Another side comment is that it would be better if you just say 'had' instead of 'had had.'
Thanks so much! Emotion: smile
I believe the past perfect had had is preferable here, given the content of the sentence.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Okay, I take back what I said. Technically, had had is better within the above context. Emotion: smile
