Just don't call me a Texan

Posted By on Wed, Aug 16, 2006 at 7:34 AM

From the Chicago Tribune:

"Call a person from Indiana an `Indianan' or `Indianian' and you will be told in no uncertain terms that the proper form of address is `Hoosier,'" cautions Paul Dickson in "Labels for Locals: What to Call People from Abilene to Zimbabwe" (Collins, 288 pages, $14.95), which is being reissued this week (an earlier edition was published in 1997). Read "Labels" and you'll know how to keep an Arkansawyer (from Arkansas) or a Guamanian (from Guam) separate from a Haligonian (from Halifax, Nova Scotia).
