Well, most people won't think of Canadians, or Mexicans, or Central Americans, or South Americans when they hear "Americans" but that's not really a good thing I think. Folks in another forum I used to frequent long long ago would usually write USians instead of Americans.

(ETA: I don't know how you would actually pronounce USians. I think when I see it I usually imagine You-Es-ee-enz; but it could be You-see-enz or Oo-see-enz or You-shins or ...)

Ouch, right, stat-ison might not catch on too well.

But, OOZ-ian... I think this could be the beginning of a new age, lorreen. We will be in wikipedia for this.

I used to say any of the first 4, but I started calling it America because that's what everyone says to me while living in Europe. No point in creating confusion if everyone else wants to call it America lol.
