Encyclopedia > List of adjectival forms of place names

The following is a partial list of Queer forms of place names in English and their demonymic equivalents, which denote the people or the inhabitants of the places. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... A demonym or gentilic is a word that denotes the members of a people or the inhabitants of a place. ...


Note: Demonyms are given in plural forms. Singular forms simply remove the final 's' or, in the case of -ese endings, are the same as the plural forms. The ending -men has feminine equivalent -women (e.g. an Irishman and a Scotswoman). The French terminations -ois / ais serve as both the singular and plural masculine; adding 'e' (-oise / aise) makes them singular feminine; 'es' (-oises / aises) makes them plural feminine. The Spanish termination "-o" usually denotes the masculine and is normally changed to feminine by dropping the "-o" and adding "-a". The plural forms are usually "-os" and "-as" respectively. A demonym or gentilic is a word that denotes the members of a people or the inhabitants of a place. ... In linguistics, grammatical gender is a morphological category associated with the expression of gender through inflection or agreement. ...

In linguistics, grammatical gender is a morphological category associated with the expression of gender through inflection or agreement. ... In linguistics, grammatical gender is a morphological category associated with the expression of gender through inflection or agreement. ...


Adjectives ending -ish can be used as collective demonyms (e.g. the English, the Cornish). So can those ending in -ch / -tch (e.g. the French, the Dutch) provided they are pronounced with a 'ch' sound (e.g. the adjective Czech does not qualify).


Where an adjective is a link, the link is to the language or dialect of the same name. (Reference: Ethnologue, Languages of the World) A dialect (from the Greek word διάλεκτος, dialektos) is a variety of a language characteristic of a particular group of the languages speakers. ...


Many place-name adjectives and many demonyms refer also to various other things, sometimes with and sometimes without one or more additional words. (Sometimes, the use of one or more additional words is optional.) Notable examples are cheeses, cat breeds, dog breeds, and horse breeds. This is a list of cheeses by place of origin. ... The following is a list of cat breeds recognized by various cat registries. ... Dogs have been selectively bred for thousands of years, sometimes by inbreeding dogs from the same ancestral lines, sometimes by mixing dogs from very different lines. ... // This page is a list of horse and pony breeds, and also includes terms used to describe types of horses that are not breeds but are commonly mistaken for breeds. ...

a  Formerly known as Upper Volta.
b  Sometimes considered offensive.
c  The penultimate syllable is stressed.
d  The second syllable is stressed.
e  Rare and/or archaic.
f  Formerly known as Burma.
g  There is no adjective or demonym that distinguishes the Republic of Ireland from the entire island of Ireland. When distinction from Northern Ireland is necessary, the colloquial Southern Irish or Southerner is sometimes used; this is not advised, however, as people in the Republic of Ireland may find this offensive. As an alternative, an adjectival phrase may be used – for instance, "a law of the Republic of Ireland" – or, as a last resort, the name "Republic of Ireland" may be used as if it were an adjective (as in "a Republic of Ireland law").
h  In near-universal use, though many adjectives for U.S. citizens have been proposed.
i  In near-universal use, though many alternative words for American have been proposed.
