Let us know what you think.

I still don't get it.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Did you think of using a good dictionary?

Main Entry: Viet·cong
Pronunciation: vE-'et-'kä[ng], vyet-, "vE-&t-, vEt-, -'ko[ng]
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural Vietcong
Etymology: Vietnamese Viêt-cong
Date: 1957
: a guerrilla member of the Vietnamese Communist movement


Main Entry: Viet·nam·ese
Pronunciation: vE-"et-n&-'mEz, "vyet-, "vE-&t-, "vEt-, -na-, -nä-, -'mEs
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural Vietnamese
Date: 1947
1 : a native or inhabitant of Vietnam
2 : the language of the largest group in Vietnam and the official language of the country
- Vietnamese adjective

Now what is the difference? One is a guerrilla and the other simply an inhabitant!
