Countries, Adjective Forms, and Nationalities (#1), by Dennis Oliver

 
 

 

The adjective forms for countries and the names for citizens of countries
are often confusing in English. This happens for two reasons. First, there
is no easy way to change a country's name to its adjective form because
several different endings are used for this purpose. Second, the words
for nationalities are often the same as the adjective forms, but not always.

This series of Hints will give the following information for many countries:
country name, adjective form, and word used for a country's citizens.
