border vs border on

< Previous | Next >


Chinese - China
I'm not sure whether the following sentences are correct:

A: Minnesota borders (on) Iowa on the north.
B: Minnesota borders on Iowa to the north

For sentence A,
a. Can I use border here? I'm not sure whether I can use "border" if the two places are within the same country.
LDOCE: if one country, state, or area borders another, it is next to it and shares a border with it.

b. "on the north" or "to the north"?

For sentence B, is this sentence correct? Are border on and border the same in terms of meaning?
