Appendix:English nationality prefixes

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Nationality prefixes are prefixed combining forms relating to a country, nationality, ethnicity, or language, or — most often — to more than one of these. These prefixes are not always etymologically related to the current name; for example, Luso-, which forms words having to do with Portugal, Portuguese, or the Portuguese, derives from Latin.
