    My American أمريكيتى

    My Turkish تركيتى

     

    I'm not sure if I understood your question well...
    Do you want to say, for example, 'my Russian friend'?
    If so, then we say:
    صديقي الروسي‎ ‎

    And for female:
    صديقتي الروسية

    It has nothing to do with the nationality adjective. You add ‎ي‎ to the noun, not the adjective.
