National Adjectives

27-12-2007, 22:24
If there isn't one, someone should compile a list of what the people from each country are called, what the adjective for that country is and so on.

Inspired by Az-cz' post from a few months ago (just recently unearthed due to clearing out old threads on my faves page) here is the place to list your country with adjectives used to describe it. And if possible, the pronounciation of the name(s)/ adjectives. The Degrogatory Nickname is for fun only, (I.E.: most Americans don't like to be called YANKS.. at least I don', if you want to poke fun at your country.

For example:
NATION: Qazox (pronounced: Kaz-oks)
Name of inhabitants: Qazoxians (pronounced: Kaz-oks-e-ans)
Short name of inhabitants: Qazians (pronounced: Kaz-e-ans)
Adjective: Qazoxian (pronounced: Kaz-oks-e-an)
Short adjective: Qazian (pronounced: Kaz-e-an)
Derogatory Nickname(s) of Inhabitants: Ox-Heads or Ox-Worshipers

If necessary, You may put male/female names and adjectives if appropriate.

Candelaria And Marquez
28-12-2007, 14:09
NATION: Candelaria And Marquez (usually pronounced by natives as can-dul-LAIR-re-ah and mar-KAYZ with the and given its full value)

Short form of nation: C&M (see-un-em) or alternatively CAM; though the latter is seldom used in spoken form.

Name of inhabitants and adjective: Candelariasian(s) (CAN-du-lair-re-uz-she-un or can-du-lair-re-aze-zhun; the pronounciation does not appear settled). The usage of C&M and Candelarias as adjectives is acceptable in instances where the original sense is retained (i.e., the Candelariasian Navy could also be referred to as the C&M Navy or Candelarias Navy). Though internationally ubiquitous, the use of Candelarian should be confined to instances where the user is certain that the individual or entity being referred to is of solely Candelarian origin. Marquezian is the usual form employed in C&M in reference to Marquez natives, particularly those of Hispanic origin.

International Alternatives: Trading and socio-political contact with extra-regional nations since the early 19th C has led to the common use of a number of alternative adjectives in foreign countries. Many of these are now considered archaic or entirely defunct, but include (or included); the Vephrese Candlearisian, Kura-Pellandi Candelasarian, Bostopian Candalian, Qazoxian Candlearian, Bazalonian Calandarian, Han Engrish and Sargossan Canderlarian, Vanorian Canderlian, Canderlisian and Cadelarian (the latter also being a Qazoxian alternative), the Canderarian, Canderlari and Canderlarian as employed in various different parts of the Lowland Clans (the latter also being a Vanorian alternative), the Krytenian Candelari and Marqueste (the nation itself is referred to as Candelar in most of Krytenia, with Spanish-speaking Avides employing the term Marquez y Candelar for preference), the Sorthern Northlandish Candelaris, the Sterogan (and, by proxy or laziness, likewise used in the Dreamed Realm) Candelarsian, the Candelbran and Candelbrese of Bears Armed, the Wysterian Candelalalian, and the inexplicable CAD as used in Kiryu-shi.

[Note that alternatives used in Taeshan are exempt from the list above. We'd be here all day otherwise.]

Derogatory Nickname: None of the above are considered especially offensive by C&M natives. The country and its citizens are far too obscure to enjoy great dislike among foreigners, though non-human nations regularly refer to the country’s occupants as “flaming specists” (or speciesists) et al, and the dismissive term “those creeps” has garnered a certain amount of popular usage in foreign, non-human media. More directly, Candelarians and Marquezians have been referred to as bowlers and hombres by Nethertopian natives.

All info listed in English and Spanish, our national languages.

Nation: Norwellia/Noruelia
Demonym: Norwellian/noruelian@
I don't get the "short name"...

The only other useful tidbit I can think of is that all Norwellian citizens and benevolent visitors have the title of "Colleague" or "Colega", such that our star striker would be called "Colleague Vermeeren" or "Colega Vermeeren" in a formal setting. It is considered awkward to use this nomenclature for foreigners who are not currently in NOrwellia, or who are in Norwellia for nefarious purposes. (For the record, "nefarious purposes" specifically does not include torching, rioting, or other forms of direct action, which are considered essential parts of Norwellian political life.) It is considered tacky to apply the term "Colleague" to oneself, and it is thought downright rude to refer to oneself by another official title unless it's directly relevant to the task at hand. When in doubt, visiting doctors, nobles, PhDs, etc., should refrain from referring to themselves by their proper titles in informal contexts.

(The term for "name of inhabitants", BTW, happens to be demonym (, which is nice because that way it will apply to your people living abroad, too, not just the people who are currently inhabiting your country. Who may, in fact, be enemy soldiers...anyway, the point is, you should consider using the word "demonym".)

Note to Norwellia: a short name would be like Yank for Americans, Canuck for Canadians, Brit for Englishmen, Cheese-eating surrender monkeys for French.. etc. (no offense to any French....)
And not many people know what Demonym means.
