If, like me, you have ever wondered about the origins of the suffixes used to denote nationality (and who hasn’t?), help is at hand. Thomas Tsoi guides us on an interesting and entertaining romp through the complexities of suffixes denoting nationality in his blog Linguish.net.
Tsoi’s combination of linguistics and geography —“So Many Nationality Suffixes”— comes complete with a world map. Take a look and marvel at the power of geography to attract students of other disciplines.
