I think it depends on context ....

The British are people from Britain

The man standing over there is an American.

maybe someone else can give you a better explanation

Agree, all of them are depending on context except american, which is singular; plural form is Americans.

Chinese has different calligraphy. (here it is language)
Chinese are left to ask why schools crumbled. (here people)
