ue ni is also used to say something exists on top of something else
A no ue ni B ga aru.
A のうえに B がある。
Another apt translation of the term: "on top of". ("On top of it being cold, it was windy." "On top of losing our way, we were caught in a rainstorm.")
i changed the japanese of the entry to 上に, as i think you're right - that is the most common way this phrase is written. beginners can work with the romaji...
Any chance of making this searchable via its kanji form? Almost missed it searching with 上に.
not to be confused with uede
(Nicked from somebody else's post) 'Could have the connotation of "adding insult to injury"'
The exmple is awkward for me. Have no idea to correct it using 上に.
That's what I get for nicking stuff off news-sites. I'll have to see if I can find a better example.
I've also tried going over the English translation again - it wasn't very impressive.
Kanji version - 上に
