I've always thought that anyone born in the USA was a Native American.
Is Cajun (from Acadian) formed the same way as Injun? I had a friend who
disagreed with this theory and cited a Michener novel as proof. I tried
reading the novel (now I don't even remember the title) but did not see
any reference to the formation of "Injun" in it.
Quotative "like": I think this originated during the 1970's from the
cartoon "Scooby Doo." Shaggy used the expression quite a bit. I picked
up the habit myself and it grated on my father's ears.
