Usage notesEdit

  • Definition 1 is the common meaning.
  • Definition 2 is more modern and borrowed from English. It is more commonly used in Spain than in the Americas, although its use is discouraged on both regions.
  • Definition 3 is very rarely used, the term indiano being more common.
  • It is primarily in the United States where americano is currently used in reference to the United States. Otherwise, in Spanish americano is always used in reference to the Americas. For the United States (country) in particular, the more precise term is estadounidense.
  • The usage of the term norteamericano in reference to the United States is not strictly speaking correct, as this term technically refers to North America (which in Spanish it is restricted to Canada, the United States and Mexico); however, it is very commonly used in reference to the U.S. on formal writing and in academia.
