Mensagem:  Pat, As a scion,culturally speaking, you probably shouldn't take it too personally. Although there are such words as Chinaman, probably attributed by Americans and there are Bushmen, translated from Afrikaans into English,it would indeed be interesting to see why Englishmen would only consider their closest neighbours fit to be called -men. Ah, there were and still are Romans. Now you tell me.
