Many nouns for languages also are the cultural/ethnic noun (loosely) for the speakers. For example :
- French: May refer to the language and Or the people
- English : may refer to the language or the people
- Spanish : may refer to the language or the people
Hindi is a language spoken in India but there is no such thing as “Hindi people”.
Are there other languages that fall into category ? I am guessing Yiddish and Aramaic are nouns for the language but not the people. Is that correct ?
