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

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).
