Latinamerican countries are every place in America (as a continent) where languages born from LATIN are spoken (spanish, italian, portuguese and french).

we dont always have to be ignorant about other things not skyscrapers
I'm pretty sure Spanish can refer to the nationality and the language

I thought Latin American was a Yank who spoke an ancient Roman language.
As far as calling a person Spanish or a Spaniard, the "expert" might want to Google the difference between a noun and an adjective.

Typical American. Have you ever heard of Latin American dancing for example? It is not Yankee dancing done by Roman tongue speaking Americans....

You can tell most people on this thread don't actually live in New York City.

In NYC many second generation hispanics, particularly kids, will refer to someone who is hispanic, or of latin american ancestry, as being "Spanish". That is, you will hear some kid asking his friends "Is she spanish?" as in, is she Dominican, Puerto Rican, Mexican,etc. NOT is she from Spain.

That is how the term "spanish" is used as slang in NYC amongst some of the population and given that languages are very fluid and dynamic, particularly in port cities with lots of immigrants like NYC, this is completely unsurprising. So I think we can stop this argument already.

BTW, Carlos, thanks for the pictures. I love 'em!

Typical American? Nothing typical about it. This is a very ignorant statement ...

Anyway, nice pics especially the pic from the roof of WTC7.

It's not just NYC. I live in Florida now and everyone refers to the hispanic as simply Spanish. Everyone who has ever lived in the US knows that!

Thanks for the pictures!

I hope to visit NY in a few months and see the WTC progress.

PD: By the way, as you can see I'm Spanish from Spain. It was a bit confusing for me the first time I visited the States and people asked me 'where are you from?' now I always answer Spanish from Spain. So no big deal after all.

This was the best answer on this subject.

The official language is Portuguese in Brazil, but also in schools learn Spanish.

Brazil has also owned the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) the new world powers.
