The term Ethnie is used in more recent time also usually than synonym for people, trunk, or nationality. However the term should not be used in connection with nation. Often Ethnie already designates a kind generic term of a higher order of a group. Examples for it are the language's groups of the Indogermanen and/or. Indoeuropäer or Turkvölker, which understand some researchers also as ethnical units, without a Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl would be to be proven here.
of relative is again the use of the term of the ethnical group for the historically loaded term „race “. Whether by the new term the scientific inadequacies of historical race theories to be overcome to be able, remains to be waiting. Critics see a bare exchange of words speaking therein and in the connection already of the racingism without races.
