The adjective Anglo-American generally refers to English-speaking America , which is sometimes referred to as Anglo- America in contrast to Latin America . A distinction must be assisted by the hyphen written Kopulativkompositum Anglo-American , which means something like "Great Britain and (English-speaking) North America equally concerning." Analogously, Anglo American citizens of the United States and Canada (or at least the English), Anglo- Americans, on the other hand, “British and North Americans”.

In distinguishing jurisdictions thinks Anglo-American law (or Anglo-Saxon law ) the common law , the law in force in many English-speaking countries, the (precedents) and relies more on court decisions of the past on legislation. Parts of the common law still apply in numerous countries that were formerly colonies of the English crown, for example in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand .
