The trouble with Britain/UK is you always have to be quite specific which of the two you mean - they are not the same thing


eg United Kingdom = le Royaume Uni

but

Great Britain ( which is not the same thing as the UK ) = la grande Bretagne


and

The British Isles ( which is different again from either of the above ) =
Les Iles Britanniques


and finally England ( that is the funny little country to the South of Scotland and to the East of Wales ) = Angleterre

My Flemish is even worse than my French so I am not even going to try in that language

but I would be more favourable to the "United Provinces ... " and would recommend "al-Dawlatun al Muttahida .... "

but NOT so in Switzerland where the double-s was cancelled in the first decade of the 20th century, and so it is Grossbritannien, Strasse, Masse, Klasse, Hass, krass etc

Jush (you young nitpicker ), as a German, I know that Groß is written with "ß". But I have had several times, problems to use ä, ö, ü and ß here on a.net. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. So I used "ss".

Please look on the quote of your reply on the reply #14 of ME AVN FAN. Do you see what I mean?

A.net is a danger for umlauts and ßs Big grin.

Quoting Cedars747 (Reply 20):

the official name of Kuwait is "Dawlat al-Kuwait" and the official name of Qatar is "Dawlat Qatar", while Joumhouriya is the Republic. Wilayat originates from the Ottoman Empire and is a province, as Algeria for instance has 48 Wilayatan, and while the term in Algeria is Arabic and refers to the Ottoman "Wilajets" the Algerian Wilayatan are clearly sisters of the French Departements.

And it is obvious that the "States" of the USA in a way ARE "Republics" and NOT Wilayatan.

accepted, BUT I discussed the use of Wilayat already in the 80ies with 2 Palestinian language teachers who insisted on the Wilayat-term and told them that the use of that word in a way is deregatory. Similar in a way to Algeria, which properly is al-Djaza'eriya but they insisted "to us it simply is el-Djaza'er for the whole country, not only the city " .

and, as you are in Qatar, WHY does Qatar have the word Dawlat in its official name instead of Imarat ?
