† In linguistics and geopolitics, an exonym is a name of a place or group that's chosen by outsiders, and an endonym is a name chosen by insiders. For example, compare Mount McKinley to Denali.

‡ An in-group is a group that someone psychologically identifies with, and an out-group is one that someone doesn't identify with.
