WHAT DOES ETHNIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?
An ethnicity, or ethnic group, is a social group of people who identify with each other based on common ancestral, social, cultural, or national experience. Membership of an ethnic group tends to be associated with shared cultural heritage, ancestry, history, homeland, language, or ideology, and with symbolic systems such as religion, mythology and ritual, cuisine, dressing style, physical appearance, etc. The largest ethnic groups in modern times can comprise hundreds of millions of individuals and the smallest can be limited to a few dozen individuals. Larger ethnic groups may be organized into smaller sub-ethnic groups known as tribes, which over time may become separate ethnic groups themselves; ethnic groups derived from the same historical founder population often continue to speak related languages and may be considered to be ethno-linguistic groups.
