Location of the word River
The River Thames
The Mississippi River
The location of the word River can be in front of names and behind names and there is no meaning difference between both ways? What do you experts think? Thank you so much as usual in advance.
There is no difference in the meaning, but you can't just decide to change it from one way to the other. These are proper nouns. All words and names come from a variety of origins. Some factors are the time period, region, and root language. For instance, The River Thames has an etymology of Middle English & Celtic. The Mississippi River was named much later and comes from a French word.
