No guys you won't find it in the dictionaries 'cos it's one of mine, but the confusion is somewhat diminished if you use the upper case for the first three letters, i.e. USAnia. I found that it was less insulting for the rest of the American nations to have a word to describe those Americans who just come from the USA. After all Mexico has Mexicans, Argentina has Argentinians, Canada has Canadians, so I thought it was only fair that the USA should have USAnians. I hope that this has cleared up any misunderstandings. Jeremy
