They also don't speak English as a native language. If they so converse with someone in English they have to K ow 1,000s of English words, grammar and syntax ao you'd think high on the list would be how to say their country's name in a new language they're learning.
help me figure it out. you know how to make a good quiz.
and what spelling of it they must accept?
People are just saying what the English version of each country is.
Wikipedia page of "Ireland"=Republic of Ireland
Ireland itself is an island that contains two different countries on it.
This is somewhat analogous to how the city of New York is often referred to as "New York City" to distinguish it from the state of New York. However the official name of the city is "New York", not "New York City".
... Yeah, I ran out of adjectives. No offense meant to Italians!
It's not hard, in this case, to call it Cote d'Ivoire, but not all native-language names transliterate so easily.
I do grant also that some English-language names for places are quite different than what the place calls itself in its native language. But there can be a lot of good reasons for that.
One great example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_Germany
Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are the names of the countries on the island of Ireland
How do you like that?
Ireland-Iceland (Only difference is R/C)
So Ireland is the name of the country and also the name of the island.
When people need to distinguish between the country and the island, they will use the descriptors "Republic of Ireland" or "island of Ireland". This is somewhat analogous to how people say "Washington state" when they need to distinguish from Washington DC, even though the name of the state is "Washington", not "Washington state".
p.s. Got it with 1m 35s left but just wanted to contrast some of the people excessively bragging
Rest of the world: Côte d'Ivoire
