The т in исвестный is silent and gives only an etymological hint, being related to извести́ть to notify, to announce.
I wrote "he is a known person" why is this wrong. My mother language is french... in french we say "il est une personne connue"
In English famous is well-known.
"Well known" was wrong for me.. I had to add the hyphen
"He is famous." should be accepted in my opinion. Of course he is a person.
Shouldn't "known person" be accepted too? It makes the same sense.
Unknown = не + известный
Can "славный" be used as a synonym for "известный?"
no.. "известный" is "famous".. and "слава" is "glory" but "славный человек" means "nice/good person"
Famous means well known as you should accept the answer as correct
Is there a difference between известный and знаменитый? Or are they synonymous?
