they don’t really have anything they are called.
"Nederlander" is gender-neutral and, therefore, correct but is seldom used.
I mean way to prove QM right I guess??
And the Swiss German isn't that different from each other.
But yes you could call a Scottish person a Scot.
Second, I always thought people from Paris were called Parisites.
I think This Venn Diagram explains it best
No clue for those English nicknames.
Scouser was originally the name given to people who ate the dish which later expanded to all Liverpudlians.
I've also heard it called Lobby as well, but the may just be a regional variation
Phoenicians came from Phoenicia (unless you are referring to the town in Arizona?)
I was super confused why my (misspelled) answer wasn't being accepted and couldn't figure out where the misspelling was (particularly since the letter "i" is pronounced with an "eeee" sound in Italian).
And then, I was once told by a Filipina that if I (a Finn) went to Philippines, they would most certainly call me there "Americano".
Maybe you weren't denying that, maybe you were just suggesting "from the Americas" for clarity
QuizWol, cut & paste from Wikipedia for your convenience: English use of the term American for people of European descent dates to the 17th century, with the earliest recorded appearance being in Thomas Gage's The English-American: A New Survey of the West Indies in 1648. In English, American came to be applied especially to people in British America and thus its use as a demonym for the United States derives by extension.
2019 - 1648 = 371 years, or nearly 4 centuries.
Technically Canadians are also American but are too nice and/or fed up to care any more about making that clear. They gave up. Hasn't done them any harm really.
Same reason it doesn't take Veneziano or Peruano or Polski or Schweizerisch (Suisse? Svizzero? Helvetii?). All of those are correct demonyms for this quiz, but being on the English part of the site, they're kind of looking for answers in English unless otherwise specified.
Although actually, I guess Napolitano is like Galician/Spanish for Neapolitan so it's more like why it doesn't take Venezianisch or Perufo kasa or Huitene or Liverpoolczycy.
They take great offense when that one is messed up!
