I was taught that it means "Them over there" or something like that. The "Lloer" bit might be related to the "Lloer" in the word "Lloeren" which means "Satellite" which would make sense for the meaning I was taught.
Please pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between England and Britain? I thought they were the same, but they each have their own word. Of course the United States is often also called America (though erroneously I think). Is England the country and Britain the island??
For a full explanation, see the Wikipedia article 'Terminology of the British Isles'
'Britain' is sometimes used to describe the United Kingdom (Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England), and sometimes to describe the geographical area excluding the island of Ireland. Sometimes it is used to describe its historical extent, such as 'Roman Britain'.
England is one of the political and geographical countries within the UK.
why does it have to change from "England"?America stays as America, and Africa stays as Affrica
