In Spanish grammar names for nationalities do not take capital letters like they do in English. Nationalities can be used as either nouns or adjectives.

Some nationalities in Spanish take different masculine and feminine endings and some do not. Masculine forms ending in 'o' change to the feminine by replaing 'o' with 'a'. Similarly masculine forms ending in 'és' are replaced with 'esa' in the feminine.
