Here in Brazil usually "norte-americanos" refer to Usonians, but
sometimes someone tries to start this discussion about ambiguity, cause
it could also mean someone from North America (including Canada). But
we use "americanos" most of the time referring to Usonians too, so there
problems in both.

At least we have the word "estadunidense".

United States of what? Mexico or America?
