"Poor Mexico, so far from god and so close to the United States"
Det er én av mine favoritt sitater ^^
Why is Mexico the only country written with a 'c' instead of a 'k'
'Canada' is also written with a c. If it's a distant country it usually retains the spelling from that country.
People from Canada are called "kanadiere" and people from Mexico are called "meksikanere", however.
That is tripping me up with the spelling changing for the nationalities, but not the countries themselves.
C, Q, W, X, Z are uncommon letters only found in loanwords, proper nouns and proper names. Nationalities aren't proper nouns in Norwegian, and are written with a lower cased first letter.
Thank you Leon, for your comment. It is most helpful.
I wrote Meksiko. =(
So did I ... (sigh)
Is there a difference between sør and syd?
These weird country spellings are killing me.
