Congolese (plural Congolese)
The term Congolese on its own is not strictly a nationality since it refers to two different nations, and it is therefore a regional or supranational word, like Dominican or Scandinavian. There is no simple modifier which can be added to the word to define which nation is meant. Sometimes the nation's acronym (ROC or DRC) is added before or after 'Congolese', as in 'DRC Congolese' or 'Congolese (DRC)', sometimes the names of the capitals are added:
- Three of them were DRC Congolese and the other two were ROC Congolese
- Three of them were (Kinshasa) Congolese and the other two were (Brazzaville) Congolese.
Congolese (not comparable)
