I was reading through some BBC Mundo blogs and came across this one, in which the use of the word “American” is discussed. The use of this word is oftentimes a sensitive subject for those of us who consider ourselves American, just not from the US. Afterall, there are plenty of countries in what is considered to be the Americas.

The article observes that although what people really mean when they say something is “American” is from the United States, there are cases in which the term may be used, and indeed must in order for the statement to make sense.

Insightful and funny!
