    Mount Everest.

    Can you say "Mountain Everest", the full name instead of Mount Everest?
    25) The highest mountain in the world is Mount Everest.

    Re: Mount Everest.

    "Mountain Everest" isn't the full name.

    Re: Mount Everest.

    If "Mountain Everest" isn't full name, what is it? Do we always have to name mountains like "Mount Halla", "Mount Baekdoo", etc? They are Korean ones.

    You seem to think that "Mount" is some kind of contraction or abbreviation of the proper noun "Mountain". It is not. The full names of various famous mountains are: Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Rushmore. They are all mountains but that word does not feature in their names.

    I don't know of any mountain that is actually named Mountain XXXX. There may be some, but I don't know them. They are usually Mount XXXX or XXXX Mountain or names with neither word in them.
