Adumbratio in diario Bostoniae in fide manente militia copias Britannicas intra urbem circumdantes nomine "Yankie Doodles" irridet.

Yankee, etiam forma imminuta Yank, est vocabulum Anglicum cui sunt nonnullae significationes coniunctae, quarum omnes Americanos designant homines. Eius significationes de spatio contextuali dependent. Latissime:

Yank haud sollemni more in linguis Britannica et Hibernica praecipue inter Britannos et Australianos gratum est, et aliquando negativa significationes latentes fert.[4] Yank in lingua Anglica Meridiei Civitatum Foederatarum usitate est saltem aliquantum indignum, quamquam minus vehementer cum tempus a Bello Civili Americano transit.

Nova Nederlandia ad boreoccidentem, Nova Anglia ad boreorientem est.

Aphorismus festivus E. B. White attributus haec discrimina summatim describit:

Alienis, Yankee est Americanus.
Americanis, Yankee est Septentrionalianus.
Septentrionalianis, Yankee est Orientalianus.
Orientalianis, Yankee est Novanglianus.
Novanglianis, Yankee est Monsviridianus.
Et in Monte Viride, Yankee est quis crustum in ientaculum edit.

Alia variatio huius aphorismi in loco versus ultimi legitur:

Monsviridiano, Yankee est quisque domo extrinseca iam utitur.

Vocabulo etiam sunt nonnullae aliae etymologiae vulgares et festivae.
