'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 @Lx8.
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.
