In other words, it's how the residents of Texarkana refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a city's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Texarkana may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Texarkana.
<3>A portmanteau (such as Texarkana) is the combination or contraction of two (or more) words, their sound and the meaning of those words to create a new word. For example, camera and recorder becomes camcorder.
