Please advise which one is correct - "Eastern European" or "East European"??
On a similar case - "South-Eastern European" or "South-East European"?
If you could explain, that would be great!
Thank you! My only concern is whether, in case we have a "double" or "triple" adjective, all words should have suffixes, or only the last one? Is there a rule? Because for "South East European", we cannot say "Southern Eastern European", or "South Eastern European", right
Have a nice day
When there are two directions used in a phrase, we normally add the ending to the second (if we add an ending at all):
A south-westerly wind.
A North-Western European.
A South-East accent. (This may be somewhat colloquial.)
