Yanks isn't a word I really hear much these days (in England). It was never an insulting word though

I might be totally off but I've always heard yanks as an diminutive, endearing by nature.

(i.e. calling your brother 'stinky', it's is supposed to be an insult but it is intended as an expression of familiarity and closeness)


Both yes and no.

It's not really an insult, not in Australia anyway, since when we insult someone our language tends to be a little more... colourful than that. For us, it's more like slang. We'll call you yanks because it's short and easy to say and it's pretty well understood than yanks = americans. Half our damn language is like that.

But at the same time, I don't know if we'd call it an endearing name. We love to hate yanks, and deep down we're terrified that Australia is becoming just like America :P

You know what's not fair? All the major English speaking countries have some form of joke insult attached to them.

Yanks, limies, micks, Canadians. Everyone but Australia is in on the fun but those lazy bastards just have their name shortened.

Then you haven't actually lived in the south, you've just bummed around in cities and thought it counted.

In any case it's a joke everywhere but true bumfrack nowhere redneck country.
