    Hi, All of you.

    It pleases me to share you my second language which still my favourite stuff.
    I wish to ask you, native speaker to correct my following phrases:

    1-Americanology : a scientific study of antiquities of USA.
    2-Britainology : =========================
    3-Saudiology ===========================

    Hello!

    1-Americanology: The study of American antiquities.
    2. Britainology: The study of British antiquities.
    3. Saudiology: The study of Saudi Arabian antiquities.

    The USA doesn't really have antiquities; America does. :)

    All the best,

    Cas

    Thank you so much.I appreciate your comment.
    Again,
    Are these phrases well-formed. Are they well-constructed?
    Thank you in advance.

    That is fine except you don't need to capitalize all.

    • It pleases me to share my second language with you. English is my favorite subject.


    Please tell me if I got that right.

    I had no idea those ologies existed. Is there one for every country? :wink:

    Casiopea did better than I would have on that. At least, she did better than I would have done on my first try. :wink:

    She is right that Americanology would cover antiquities that are older than this country (USA).

    :)
