DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
Demonym (/ˈdɛmənɪm/; δῆμος dẽmos 'people, tribe', ὄνομα ónoma 'name') is a word to identify residents or natives of a particular place, which is derived from the name of that particular place. It is a recently minted term; previously, gentilic was used by the Oxford English Dictionary. Examples of demonyms include Chinese for a native of China,Swahili for a native of the Swahili coast, American for a native of the United States of America, and in the same way natives of the United Mexican States are referred to asMexicans.
Some groups of people may be referred to by multiple demonyms, relative to their location. For example, the natives of the United Kingdom can be called Brits, British people, orBritons. In English, demonyms are capitalized.
