What is the only word in the English language that when capitalized is changed from a noun or a verb to a nationality?
Pay attention to the guidelines!
I fail to find a non-capitalized noun form of welsh.
I admit that both french and polish fit the guidelines. Polish is a more satisfying answer, because I don't need a dictionary to know whether it works. As a noun, the non-capitalized "french" apparently can mean a certain species of flatfish. As a verb, besides in slang, it can mean "To cut (green beans, for example) into thin strips before cooking" or "To trim fat or bone from (a chop, for example).
"China" is not a nationality, nor is "china" a verb.
Here is the dictionary I used.
