    My maternal family came to America from England in 1792, paternal family from Scotland sometime earlier in the 18th century (some of them fought in the Revolutionary War.) My maternal grandmother was ½ Cattaraugus Indian (Seneca.)

    My father is a mix of German, Native American, and Black...my mother is a mixture of Native American and Black...I think there's some Irish in there, too, but I'm not sure.

    'Hong Konger' is the preferred form within Hong Kong, while 'Hong Kongese' is also considered correct, although the latter's usage is generally restricted to sources outside Hong Kong. 'Hong Kongian', meanwhile, is decorative but made-up, and accepted as correct usage by no-one. :wink:

    In other news: Germans, Transylvanians, Brits, and a long-lost Spaniard (for purposes of skin tone) all dare to call themselves progenitors of @L€x8. :rolleyes:

    Alex8 -> Hong Kongian is a lingo mate, we English speakers all have our own lingo, slang and colloquial language. In Australia, many people from Hong Kong refer themselves as Honkies, I prefer Hong Kongian, and its widely understood. Well it seems like you have understood what I meant anyway, so my purpose of conveying my message across is complete. Language is a working piece of art, the more creative the better.

    PS: Im using this site for fun and during my own recreational time, so i don't expect or will not even bother to write academically
