As a noun, Anglo-American can refer to an English speaking European American and/or an English Canadian, sometimes shortened to Anglo . This usage originated in the discussion of the history of English-speaking people of the United States and the Spanish-speaking people residing in the western U.S. during the Mexican-American War. This usage generally ignores the distinctions between English Americans, Irish Americans, Swedish Americans, German Americans, and other northern European descent peoples, comprising the majority of English-speaking Europeans in the United Statesmarker.
