Student or Learner
Good afternoon everybody
well I am an english learner and I am analyzing some errors so I would like to know the difference between those sentences:
Ebola got its name after a river in the north part of Congo.
Ebola got its name after a river in the north part in Congo.
I know that the first one is the correct one, but why?
thank you in advance :)
I would say:
Ebola got its name from a river in Congo. (Which one?)
Also, in AmE you might hear (for example):
Mary was named after her aunt.
Things are a part of another thing.
I am in Pennsylvania.
I am in the western part of Pennsylvania.
I am impressed with your knowledge.
well, I had to read a reaction paper of that video and it says " The virus Ebola got its name after a river in the northern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo"
that's why I was asking. I know that the preposition "in" is wrong but I wanted to know some rules about that. thank you for your response.
The virus Ebola was named after a river in Congo.
The virus Ebola got its name from the river.
