Brugen af udtrykket "American" i det engelske sprog, i den sammenhæng, hvor det udelukkende betyder folk fra USA, er udviklet fra dets oprindelige betydning, hvor det blev benyttet til at adskille [[englændere]] fra folk fra [[Britiske kolonier i Nordamerika i 1700-tallet|de britiske kolonier i Amerika]]<ref name="OED">{{subscription required}} {{cite encyclopedia|url=http://dictionary.oed.com.dax.lib.unf.edu/cgi/entry/50007152?query_type=word&queryword=American&first=1&max_to_show=10&sort_type=alpha&result_place=1&search_id=870u-gw0naW-7329&hilite=50007152|title=American|encyclopedia=[[Oxford English Dictionary]]|accessdate=November 27, 2008}}</ref> på trods af dets flertydige sproglige betydning.
