Pouvez-vous m'expliquer svp la distinction entre 'slovene' et 'slovenian' ?
Comment dirait-on par exemple : 'le slovène' (langage) ou 'un Slovène' (citoyen de Slovénie), et lequel dois-je utiliser comme adjectif, par exemple 'la langue slovène' ou 'un citoyen slovène' ?
Merci.

    I had always said a Slovenian for a person from Slovenia and Slovenian for the language (difference being the 'a' before, with no need for an adjective). But I recently learned that Slovene is now the name of the language, with the demonym being either a Slovenian or a Slovene.
