GUEST,Lighter BS: Name for people from USA (123* d) RE: BS: Name for people from USA 28 Aug 13


"United States of America." Hence "Americans."

Don't like it? Sue us. People certainly have the right to eschew "Americans" in favor of "USAans" or "USers" or whatever, but we have the right to consider those people hopeless. And we feel confident that the future history of English will vindicate us.

By the way, if the South had succeeded in 1865, the question would be still more complicated. In several Parallel Universes, this is resulting in yet more pointless Mudcat threads.
