Paki or Pakistani is used to call a thing or person from Pakistan.
But to be honest, are these words synonyms or do they have different meaning?

Because sometimes those words sounds weird in some kind of phrases.

For example :
There live many Paki in London.
A Paki mountain.
A Paki man. ( not be confused with Pacman)
A Paki stone.
There are living more Paki's than Indians in Pakistan.
I live in a Pakistani house, eating Pakistani food, grow with my Pakistani family and went to the Pakistani school.

This really sounds weird or confusing!


Same thing for people from Afgani-,Kyrgyz-,Uzbeki-,Turkmeni-,Tajiki-,Kazach- stan

The correct term would be Pakistani, however, people like to use the shorter version which is Paki. I prefer Pakistani myself, but everyone is entitled to their own preferences.

In England, especially were I've grown up (school etc) always say Pakistani. Because often people believe 'Paki' is racist. Don't know why. But for example at my old school, my friend called someone a 'Paki' for calling him a D***. My friend got extraction for a day and the other guy (Pakistani) was let off.

Yeh, if you're in the UK keep well away from the term Paki. It can be considered very offensive.

I prefer to use Pakistani, it's like the portuguese form Paquistanês so I can remember and I guess Paki is xenophobic...

Paki is considered offensive because that's what the British used to call the Pakistanis when they colonized what is now known as Pakistan and India. It was used a racist term, and was very degrading.

Afghan.
Kyrgyz. (Not 100% sure about this)
Uzbek.
Turk.
Kazakh.

Lawlz, funny thing is that I actually do know more than you. You're just a stupid American kid who doesn't know about anything that doesn't concern the US.

Your stupidity amazes me again. I'm not an American kid. I didn't even grow up in Texas. I grew up 14 out of the 15 years I have lived so far in Pakistan, and you know this. Apparently, it seems that you're of the ignorant portion of American kids as well.

Same concept, smart one. You're not necessarily a Texan if you just live there.
