"The region has many rivers."

Translation:Regiunea are multe râuri.

âu is a fun sound combination to master.


Is there a difference between fluvii and râuri? Is a râu bigger than a fluviu?


There's a little difference, "fluviu" is a bigger river, than "râu". "Fluviu" is used with very large rivers, like Amazonas, Nilus, Congo.


The dex defines a "fluviu" as a big river that ends in either a sea or an ocean. The Romanian wikipedia page for it pretty much agrees and has "Main stem" as its corresponding English article (a term I've never heard of)


According to this definition the Missouri is a rau because it ends in the Mississippi fluviu. Is it correct?


So the "Dunărea" than should be a fluviu, shouldn't it? And the "Timiș"ore the "Mureș" is a râu. But what's a little river, like in the mountains for example the "Caraș"? Is it also a râu, if it's so small, that you can cross it without a bridge?
