Legg merke til:

  • The United States, the USA, the US er alle vanlige betegnelser. US kan også brukes som adjektiv: the US President.
  • (Great) Britain inkluderer England, Scotland og Wales. The United Kingdom inkluderer også Northern Ireland. UK kan også brukes som adjektiv (UK officials). Briton er ganske uvanlig og brukes nesten bare i skriftlig engelsk.
  • Nasjonalitetsord som ender på ‑man, som Englishman/Frenchman, kan erstattes med Englishwoman/Frenchwoman hvis vi refererer til kvinner, og med English/French people hvis vi snakker om flere personer.
  • The Netherlands kalles av til Holland.
  • Scottish og Scots er vanlige adjektiv. Scots brukes om regionale dialekter i Scotland, mens Scotch bare brukes i noen fraser, som Scotch whisky, Scotch tape og noen matretter, som for eksempel Scotch pie.
