I've come across an online site that made a statement about Spanish adjectives of nationality that end in an accented e, i.e., é. However after poring through my various resources, I haven't been able to find such an adjective that ends in é, with an accent. I believe the English nationality of Burkina Faso is Burkinabé, but that is a noun. I need adjectives.
Do you have any suggestions? I hope you can assist me in this matter.
I look forward to contributing to the answers that others have, too.
Thank you in advance.
What exactly was the statement?
Is it possible that there was a mistake, and that they were actually discussing adjectives ending in "-és" ?
Could it be that they were referring to ending in -í (not -é).
We have for example iraní (from Iran), israelí (from Israel), marroquí (from Morocco). Or, as David said, we have some ending in -és: inglés, escocés, francés, libanés, portugués, irlandés...
But I can't think of any ending in -é.
A person from Burkina Faso is burkinés or burkinesa, not burkinabé (I believe the latter is from the French word)
I believe that the comments from Inma and David are probably the best possibilities. I had wondered if the statement on the online page was in error. I'm aware of what David and Inma suggested, and I thank them for the input.
