再提供一篇文章给大家参考

这是美国Newsweek 2000年的一篇文章,题目是Why Asian Guys Are on a Roll,内容是说为什么亚裔美国男子为什么开始受青睐。里面提到了:a Korean-America这个说法,这为我们翻译美籍X人提供了参考。

我看过的美英报刊介绍美籍华人时都是用的 Chinese American

注意这是报刊用法。权威的典籍则用Chinese-born American 表示“美籍华人”,比如李政道就是一个著名的美籍华人。参考美国传统辞典:

Lee, Tsung DaoBorn 1926
NONE
Chinese-born American physicist. He shared a 1957 Nobel Prize for disproving the principle of conservation of parity.
  李政道   生于 1926,美籍华人,物理学家。因其证明等量守恒定律的不正确性而获1957年诺贝尔物理学奖。

FYI

American-born Chinese(ABC)--在美国出生的华人,也叫香蕉人(黄皮白芯),尽管长着一张黄色面孔,但其思维与生活方式已完全美国化。美籍华人,窃以为用Chinese American ,强调他是美国人,也就是国籍是美国,但他并不一定是在美国出生的。

I prefer to Chinese American

The other day,  I watched CCTV-9 using " Chinese American".
In my opinion, I prefer to using " Chinese American", too.
Maybe it's a customary saying.
