‘Latino’

Pronunciation: The `a’ in the first syllable is like the `a’ in `cat’, `bat’ and `hat’, and the following `i’ is like the `ee’ in `fees’, `bees’, and `knees’ and the final `no’ is pronounced like the word `no’. The main stress is on the second syllable.

A `Latino’ is someone from Latin America who has settled down in the U.S. It’s a term mostly used in American English.
