What is the chance of accepting T(h)rakia for Thrace? I know about the "English website - English quiz - English names" rule, but still... This is the name of the region in 2 of the 3 listed countries. In the third (Greece) it's Thraki.

This is an American website. America doesn't care about other languages or cultures. You'll have to learn English names for EVRYTHING, like I had to.

As an American, I can say that a great many of us do care about other languages and cultures. This is an English quiz on an American website, but I think that the QM and other quiz creators do a pretty good job at allowing additional type-ins (both misspellings and from other languages) without the “rules” of English or the universe being destroyed. It’s about having fun and learning new things.

No, Gaelic and Scots are two completely different languages. I have to say I'm surprised if that really is the case that 2.5% of the UK population speaks Scots. Assuming most are in Scotland, and given Scotland has only 8.4% of the UK's population, that would mean nearly 30% of Scots speak the Scots language, which I find very difficult to believe.

Scots is Scottish English, not Scottish. That's why the number is so high.

Never seen it spelt that way once. I imagine Greeks pronounce it "lesvos", but it's always spelt with a B or a Beta.

Actually, if you Google it -- you will see it as Lesvos, as well. On the official Visit Greece site, it's with a V too. Both are (or have been made) acceptable.

True, you can definitely spell it both ways. There's enough examples for either spelling online.

And it will stay that way. The dialect is called Scots, not Scottish. Even allowing Scots is pushing it since it's probably just a dialect of English.

You can remove "The" from Autobahn. Unless you want to add an article everywhere it applies (answer #3 for example).

19/20 because I didnt know how to spell Trakia. Never heard it was called Trace in English but it kinda makes sense.
