There should be no "and" in English, only a comma.
Sorry i could be wrong but im pretty sure you only use commas when theres 3 or more adjectives
My answer is Finland is a small and northern country. and the Correct answer is "Finland is a small and northern country." please fix it.
It's a type what you hear question. I guess you translated it. I know the feeling ;)
It's a translate question.
Finland is small and a northern country.
Would this be right as well?
Technically yes, although you are not inclined to read it that way, since it feels more natural to have both "pieni" and "pohjoinen" to refer to "maa".
Okay, I see. Thanks!
Uuhhh... Finland isn’t small...
That's what I thought too
And there are lots of trees
I wrote "little" instead of "small" and got it wrong. What is the distinction?
There is little distinction because the distinction is small.
Is "Finland is a small and nordic country " correct ?
Nordic country would translate to Pohjoismaa in Finnish. Nordic countries are only Scandinavian countries and Finland, northern (pohjoinen) could be any country in the north (like Canada, Russia etc.) Not 100% sure about this, but hope this helps!
Iceland is also Nordic but not Scandinavian.
Scandinavia: Denmark, Norway, Sweden
Nordic countries: Scandinavia, Finland, Iceland
Northern countries: Nordic countries, Estonia, Russia, Canada, and others depending on context
Should be. It's not really small though, it's just a small population.
Nordic is pohjoismaa, not pohjoinen, so not correct
"finland is a small and a northern country" - so what is wrong with that?
More colloquially, I'd say in (British) English: "Finland is a small, northerly country."
Is it that important to include English articles?!
This course is Finnish for English speakers, so I would say yes it is.
I am really curious, would a Finn really say that? That Suomi is "small"?
According to my dictionary, Finland is 338,000km2. 8,000km2 bigger than Malaysia.
Ok, pohjoinen is undeniable, but in another example "Japani ei ole pieni", so I guess the threshold between a small and a big country lies somewhere between 338.5k km2 and 377k km2. Cool.
... yup. Or as Einstein may have said, "it's all relative"
