Subject: Re: 'the' in place names (Kaye)
Also: "The Lebanon" -- I assumed from French influence, but one also sees
'Al' before the Arabic form of 'Cairo' on maps. I hadn't noticed
Spanish uses 'the' with a set of place names -- el Panama, la Havana,
el Peru, ... Any Spanish textbook will have the list.
