For many countries especially in Europe, where access to it was closed for many years by being under the USSR control ,America has always been a DreamLand which people had written songs and poems (literary) about. People paid a lot of money and brought up all of their connections to get L'evis Jeans. and if you had one you were the most stylish person in a city.
Americaphobia, i would say is obsession with America as a country, with Americans, their style, life style (or notorious American dream), or Marijuana or speaking manners like: Dude; what's up; Yo; Ok; Hi etc. In Russia we use them a lot. Or we use a lot of derivatives from an American words by just adding a Russian ending to it to go alone with Russian grammar. We've been using it for years.)
That all goes into to the term Americaphobia.
Derivatives also very typical for Brighton Beach
neighborhood, where some people have lived for the past 25 years. Where a mix of two languages together makes perfect sense which people don't even pay attention anymore to. It's a part of a culture now.
I can only bring a Russian example of an Americaphobia to it:
-Hi, как дела? (Hi, how are you?)
2) поюзать - по-use- ать (to use with Russian ending to it)
