Learn the names of countries and demonyms in Spanish! Demonyms are adjectives that describe someone’s nationality. For example, if someone is from China, in English, their demonym is “Chinese”.
Demonyms are NOT capitalized in Spanish, and the word for demonym in Spanish is “gentilicio”.
Enjoy this series of country names and demonyms for East Asia, and look forward for more to come!
