    The Thais, the thailanders and Taiwanese

    Hello dearest teachers,
    I'm sorry to ask you a stupid question. It[s just I have such a porridge in my head with all them nationalities.
    Could you correct me if I wrong, please?

    Is 'The Taiwanese' an adjective? Can it be used as noun?
    How about "the Thais'? Do we use the Thais as adjective and as noun as well? Or Should the adjectives be "Thailanders"?

    There is different information on the internet about that. I'm totally confused and going quite mad.

    Thank you very much in advance

    Both Thai and Taiwanese can function as adjectives and nouns.

    This list is as good as any:
