Just wondering - does this include both an island in an ocean/sea/lake and also in a river? I am asking because we use it for a river island in Serbian. :)
yes it is general
Thank you for the quick response!
Now you made me curious. What is the Serbian word or words for the other islands?
Well, our word for /any/ island is "ostrvo", but we can also specify that it's a river island with "ada".
and we have "ostrov" in romanian which means a bigger island :))
İn Russian the word for any island is ostrov, stress on the 1st syllable.
If the English sentence were "They come from the island", i.e. they originally lived there, could that be translated with gelmek, or would it simply be something like "they are from the island" (onlar adadandir ?)
The latter, but you should not use the -dir suffix there. :)
