請問甚麼叫英倫三島?

我想問大家甚麼叫英倫三島?為甚麼叫英倫三島?如果是英格蘭、蘇格蘭和威爾斯的話,他們根本三是三個島,這個問題困擾了我很久,請大家解答。

Update:

對不起,搞錯問一句了,我是想說「根本只有一個島」,而不是「根本三是三個島」

    Great Britain, Ireland and several thousand smaller surrounding islands and islets form an archipelago off the northwest coast of continental Europe which is most commonly known as the British Isles.

    There are two sovereign states located on the islands: the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.[2] The archipelago also includes the Isle of Man, a United Kingdom crown dependency. Both states, but not the Isle of Man, are members of the European Union. Between 1801 and 1922, Great Britain and Ireland together formed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.[3] In 1922, Ireland left the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, except for six counties in the north east of the island, which became known as Northern Ireland.

    The islands encompass an area south to north from Pednathise Head to Out Stack, Shetland in the United Kingdom, and west to east from Tearaght Island in the Republic of Ireland to Lowestoft Ness in the United Kingdom, containing more than 6,000 islands, amounting to a total land area of 121,674 square miles (315,134 km²). The British Isles are largely low lying and fertile, though with significant mountainous areas in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the north of England. The regional geology is complex, formed by the drifting together of separate regions and shaped by glaciation.

    The islands were named after the Priteni,[4] some ancient Irish and British pre-Roman inhabitants; however, on its own, the dominant modern meaning of the adjective "British" is "of Great Britain or of the United Kingdom or its people", so the term "British Isles" can be mistakenly interpreted to imply that the Republic of Ireland is part of the United Kingdom. The Irish government's policy is that the term is not used by the government and is without any official status, as stated by Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern in October of 2006; the media in the Republic of Ireland also rarely use it. 'British Isles' has also been used to include just Northern Ireland with Great Britain, and not the Republic of Ireland, or even to exclude the entirety of Ireland.

    Answers. 1 英倫三島︰不列顛群島

    位於歐陸西北海外,分為大不列顛及愛爾蘭兩島(和許多小島)。而兩個島又分為兩個國家,是為愛爾蘭共和國、聯合王國(聯合王國即是大不列顛及北愛爾蘭聯合王國,由英格蘭、威尼斯、蘇格蘭和北愛爾蘭組合而成)。

    Answers. 2 在愛爾蘭和大不列顛島之間有一個愛爾蘭海,而整島南方則是英倫海峽(可能是這道海峽令此群島名為「英倫三島」),之中的群島有懷特島、馬恩島、阿蘭島、艾萊島、斯凱島、馬爾島等島嶼。

    Answers. 3 發問者第三個問題︰「如果是英格蘭、蘇格蘭和威爾斯的話,他們根本三是三個島」,有一個問題︰英格蘭、蘇格蘭和威尼斯同樣位於大不列群島,它們並不是分別各為一個島。

    (1).地處北大西洋文明的中心:古希臘文明以東地中海為中心,羅馬時代重心雖逐漸西移,仍以地中海為範疇。1492年,發現新大陸後,文明重心便移到北大西洋,而英國適為其中心。(2).位於西歐大陸海外,攻守自如:英吉利海峽最狹處僅三十餘公里,使英國進可參預歐洲事務,退可自保。拿破崙雄霸歐陸、希特拉席捲歐洲十餘國,但對不列顛群島仍是望洋興嘆。(3).居世界最繁忙的航線上:新大陸發現後,航船將西歐移民運往美洲,又將美洲土產及原料運回歐洲加工、再將成品運銷至世界各地,北大西洋航線因而成為全球最忙的航線,海運量占世界之半,英國船隻及海港也因參與工作而帶來許多財富。
