    Smile Border

    I´d like to ask which word I should use in this sentence : The border of the Protected Landscape Area Jeseníky runs across/runs through/ goes through the notch/pass. I have tried to find out answer in the internet but I wasn´t succesful
    Thanks in advance

    Re: Border

    Are you meaning that there is a mountain pass and that the border goes through/runs through this pass?
    A pass is likely to be fairly short and not particularly winding. If you were talking about a border that was partly defined by the course of a river, you would say, the border follows the river.
    A 'notch' is a small nick, like a knife would make if you sliced a piece of wood in the same place a few times - like a very shallow v-shaped marking.
