Usage notes

  • Definition 1 is the common meaning.
  • Definition 2 is more modern and imported from the English.
  • Definition 3 is very rarely used, the term indiano being more common.
  • Only in the United States is americano currently used in reference to the United States. Otherwise, in Spanish americano is always used in reference to the American continent. For the United States (country) in particular, the correct global term is estadounidense.
  • The usage of the term norteamericano in reference to the United States is also not entirely correct, as this term technically refers to North America (which includes Canada, United States and Mexico), but it is very common in reference to the U.S.
