Etymology[edit]

@ resembles both the feminine ending/element a and the masculine o. The pronunciation ending in /-aʊ̯/ is from how Latinao would be pronounced; the one ending in /-eɪ/ uses (approximately) the sound of Spanish -e, a vowel between a and o.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ləˈtinaʊ/, /læˈtinaʊ/, /ləˈtineɪ/, /læˈtineɪ/, or as the full phrase "Latino and Latina"

Noun[edit]

  1. Someone of Latin American descent; a Latino or Latina.

Adjective[edit]
