Why is it incorrect?........ you don't say the Chinese pronunciation for China, or Indian for India or Arabic for Saudi Arabia.

The government of Cote D'Ivoire adamantly prefers the French spelling of their name. This is the criteria that has been used in every country quiz with Cote D'Ivoire in it. One could even argue it shouldn't be known as the Ivory Coast in the first place.

Re: Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire. Both of these countries have issued official statements declaring that these are the names by which they would like to be called, which is why the convention is to call them by these names. Cabo Verde's was very recent (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/12/131212-maps-cabo-verde-cartography-science-cape-verde-africa/). It might be outside the scope of this conversation to discuss why they feel so strongly about that, but, in any case, the governments of Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire have specifically stated they do not want to be called Cape Verde or Ivory Coast, respectively.

A recently deposed Prime Minister of my country once referred to Canada as Canadia. Of course he was an idiot, but he was a democratically elected idiot. Just keep that in mind USA, as the Trump mobile gathers steam towards the White House. But then, Trump is not really stupid. The contradictory statements, conflicting moral viewpoints and apparent confusion are all a part of his campaign strategy. Michael Moore may well be right when he says that only satire can bring him down(of course, he is a satirist), and that brains and logic are useless against him.

Curacao was never part of Venezuela. Liberator Simon Bolivar fled to Curacao when the tide turned against him, but the island was never owned by Venezuela. There is a refinery on the island (Isla) that refined Venezuelan crude oil, but I think that even that has now been sold.

This is why most countries despise the USA. It is our sense of entitlement that gets on other people's nerves. HOW DARE you dictate that any country has to submit to the English spelling/pronunciation of their country! - Learn to spell or stay off the site!
+1
level 74
Jan 10, 2018
I don't think it's so much a sense of entitlement or poor spelling skills as not remembering which spellings and names are now considered correct. Changes are occurring all the time. We are taught one thing in school, such as Peking, Bombay, Ivory Coast, etc., and then a new group comes to power and decides to change it or a new spelling is considered closer to how the country's citizens spell it, so suddenly we're all terrible people if we don't immediately make the change. And then, sometimes, just as quickly the winds change and the previous name is back in favor. Regardless, there's no need to get so angry at people who have problems spelling - have you considered that perhaps English isn't their first language, or maybe spelling is just difficult for them? I know I find it more difficult now than when I was young, and I was considered a great speller in my young days. I appreciate QM's leniency.
