Puerto Rico license plate "Isla Del Encanto"
While in Puerto Rico I noticed the license plates had the phrase "Isla Del Encanto" on them. I know what the words mean, but how exactly does it translate? I think the reflexive verb is throwing me off. The enchanted island? The island I love?
The island of charm
Charlius is correct in that there is no reflexive verb here.
Isla del Encanto .................. Island of Enchantment
Basically a charming, pleasant island. Or I guess what would sound good in english would be, The Island of Intrigue, Pleasure Island, something along those lines.
Here there is no verb reflexive or otherwise. 1) Isla-noun 2) del-contraction of 'de' and 'el', conjunction to express a possessive quality 3) encanto - noun
And it's accurate!
