49er Taiwanese
 n.— «They are Taiwanese, multi-generational natives of the island formerly known as Formosa. They do not want to be confused with so-called “49er Taiwanese”—a reference to the Nationalist supporters who arrived after 1949 and maintained a strict hegemony in national politics for decades.» —“Split Over Taiwan’s Future” by David Pierson Los Angeles Times Apr. 3, 2005.
