The word "American" in any language should not be used in the context to refer to a citizen or national of the United States of America.

Other terms to address U.S. citizens/nationals that are not the best:[edit]

de: US-Amerikaner (); US-Amerikanerin () • no: USA-amerikaner

The German terms US-Amerikaner and US-Amerikanerin as well as the Norwegian term USA-amerikaner in my opinion are not good terms to call a U.S. citizen/national in those languages. In both languages the acronyms "US” and "USA” come from the English United States of America, however the right terms in my opinion should be “VS-Amerikaner” and “VS-Amerikanerin” in German and “AFS-amerikaner” in Norwegian. The German equivalent acronym for “US” is “VS” which comes from Vereinigte Staaten while the Norwegian acronym “AFS” comes from Amerikas forente stater. The anglicisms are unecesary.

es; pt: norteamericano (♂); norteamericana (♀) • ca: nord-americà (♂); nord-americana (♀)

The Portuguese and Spanish terms norteamericano (norte-americano in Portuguese) and norteamericana (norte-americana in Portuguese) as well as the Catalan terms nord-americà and nord-americana, all meaning North-American, are used in those languages as demonyms for people of the USA, yet it is wrong because it is the demonym for people and things from the continent of North America so in all it should not be use at all in that manner.

en: Unitedstatian, Unitedstatians

The pronunciation is my only problem with this word otherwise the word is perfect.

qu: US-amirikanu

The term US-amirikanu of the Quechua language as with the German and Norwegian terms used the English acronym in order to be more specific when referring to citizens or nationals of the United States; I know nothing of how that language works but if a word could be created using the native Quechua name of the United States (Hukllachasqa Amirika Suyukuna) that refers only to U.S. citizens/nationals and not to the American continent, which is called in Quechua Awya Yala but can also be called Amirika which can cause confusion when using the demonym to those not native to Quechua and may cause to them to call U.S. citizens/nationals Americans and vice versa.

Samoa…n Islands of the United States!!![edit]

Samoa islands 2002.gif

I feel that the islands that are called American Samoa should have been named in a similar fashion to the later U.S. Virgin Islands' official name, since the islands belong to the United States of America and not just the Americas. I would like those islands to be renamed in that manner officially someday soon.
