@Vinnifred, and how is famous translated into Ukrainian?
i'd say that "famous" is "славетний", and "відомий" = "well-known"
I would say that "славетний" is "glorious, reputable", that said you have to be popular to be called that. You can have "bad fame" (недобра слава), but you can't use any "bad" adjectives with "славетний"
He is a famous (your way is - popular) player. - why is it wrong?
Famous and popular aren't the same thing
famous - known about by many people.
popular - liked, admired, or enjoyed by many people
It isn't. You should file a report.
can also be used to describe someone/ something 'famous'/'glorious'.
