"Această zonă are foarte multe insule mici."
Translation:This zone has a lot of small islands.
I thought that această is used when the proximity pronoun comes aver the noun and that when the pronoun is before the noun, such as this zone, the pronoun is just aceast. What am I missing?
"Aceasta" without the smiley ă is used after the noun. Before the noun is "această". You might be confusing this feminine form with the masculine forms: "acest" before the noun, and "acesta" after the noun. Hope that helps :)
