Laos, Laotian, or Lao?


I'm not sure why a lot of people make this mistake. Maybe we just don't hear a lot of news in English about Laos in general. The adjective is Lao/Laotian, and the noun is Laos (the country), so if a person says "I'm Laos", it would imply that the speaker thinks he/she is a country.
