Zella, hi

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I have been thinking about the query in the original post:  What would one call an equivalent to anglophile who appreciates the culture of the USA and the lack of a word for it.

I'm a great lover of the English language and how adaptable it is. So for a bit of fun I asked my young daughter last night and she came up with....

Americanophile.   (Bless)

I did point out to her that America is not just the USA.  It’s a huge continent.  But she was adamant and seemed rather pleased with herself.

I wasn’t going to argue with a happy child.
