    Is this okay?

    I need your help. Is everything okay with the following context? "The land of mile" ? to me it sounds good, but I think correct form is "Land mile"

    In what context do you wish to use 'land of mile' or 'land mile'?

    I don't have a specific context. :) I wish to use 'land of mile' or 'land mile' like a name of something

    Well, 'Lake Litre' would do just as well.

    They don't make any sense to me.
    The name of what?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Is this okay?

    Whatever it's supposed to mean, Paulys, a better title would have been 'Land of mile/land mile.
