    France, Frenchman, French and French

    Hello,

    I wonder if you could kindly suggest if there is a list of the countries' names, their people, the languages and the their adjectives, such as:

    Germany, German, German and German

    Thanks.

    Note that some of these forms aren't standardized.

    For example, you'll see both Afganistan/Afgan/Afgan and Afganistan/Afgani/Afgani. Another one which varies is Somalia/Somali/Somali versus Somalia/Somalian/Somalian.

    Also, as it is a sensitive area of language, these terms may change and a word that was once acceptable may fall out of favour.
