Anime is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese.

If it's from an older adult I usually just ignore it, generation gap and all that.
Cartoon and anime are different in their connotations even if their denotative meanings are largely the same or similar, but it would take more effort than it's usually worth to explain that to someone with no experience in the medium.

Just wanted to mention that there's a new, and pretty good quality, discussion going on about this over in the Anime Forum right now.

It honestly pisses me off when people think anime is NOT cartoons.
ANIME IS CARTOONS. Deal with it. It just comes from another country.

Danish cartoons, French Cartoons, German Cartoons
Cartoons
They are all different in different countries in regards to profiting styles; but they are all categorically the same.

According to Wikipedia, cartoon is a form of two dimensional art, which anime is, so yes, anime is cartoon.

For me, it's a different type of cartoon.

This got me thinking. Is there any non-japanese cartoons that where the target audience is like +16 yo? I don't know if I'm making any sense, but it feels like a non-Japanese cartoon always have a <= 14 yo main target audience (with some minor adult parts so that parents can watch them with their children without getting too bored). I cant, however, remember any gory cartoons, like Elfen Lied-ish, being done outside Japan.
