Anglo

Part of Speech: Noun

Definition: “a white inhabitant of the U.S. of non-Hispanic descent”

Source: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Anglo

Found In: “All-American Girl” by Julia Alvarez line 16 – “I practiced foreign faces, Anglo grins,”

Explain: The word Anglo refers to a English person. This helped me understand the poem better because the girl is trying to make the expressions on her face look american.
