USA is not America

Indeed, U.S.A. is not America!

America is the name of a whole continent. United States of America means that the United States belongs to America and NOT that America belongs to the United States. So, next time you want to refer to The United States of America, you can do it as U.S. or the States or whatever you want but not as only America. Gotcha?

America

How should I use the term America then?

Here we will show you some wrong and correct uses of the term America:

  • This is how we do it in America.
  • This is how we do it in the States.
  • America is my country and I love it.
  • The United States is my country and I love it.
  • America lost the Vietnam war.
  • U.S.A. lost the Vietnam war.
  • Here in America we love Mc Donald's.
  • Here in the U.S. we love Mc Donald's.

Please, note that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country.

After Two years of existence of this site, Admin is still incapable of coming up with a format that allows rational and productive discussion and debate. It's high time to draw the obvious conclusions. Admin does not want rational and productive discussion and debate.

THE UNITED STATES IS NOT A COUNTRY. THE UNITED STATES IS A BODY POLITIC/ ADMINISTRATION. AMERICA IS ONE LARGE LAND MASS THAT EXTENDS FROM THE SOUTHERN THRU THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. IT IS GENERALLY REFERRED TO AS NORTH, CENTRAL, AND SOUTH, WITH THE SOUTH BEING DIVIDED INTO SEVERAL NATIONS, I.E., BRAZIL, ARGENTINA, EQUADOR, AND PERU; THE CENTRAL BEING OF ONLY ONE NATION, MEXICO; AND NORTH AGAIN, ONLY ONE NATION, AMERICA (DIVIDED INTO 52 STATES). THE UNITED STATES ARE BUT A BODY POLITIC FORMED BY ... Read More

America is a continent and within this continent a country was born. That country used to be many different sovereign colonies or States and thus as they battled the British they called for a unity among the sovereign states in order to beat the British. They needed to be stronger than the British and thus they formed a union of states. The States did not want to give up their sovereignity so they formed a confederation of states and thus the name United States of America is a the union of ... Read More

Actually the British started calling us Americans when we were British America before we became the United States of America. It was to distinguish "Americans" from "British." I don't say America, it aggravates me, I say United States or USA. But we were Americans before we became United States of America. So blame the British.

I don't give the proverbial rodent's patoot what "aggravates" you, but thanks for validating the use of "America" for the USA.

the only validation you have is the usage from people who did not know what they were doing. You still don't know what you are doing by calling it America. At least Kelly is right, the British called anyone from America, Americans to differentiate them from the British. Go back and read history and you will figure this one out. I hope.

People from the United States call it United States or USA. Only people from other countries refer to it as America.

Seriously? What alternative universe with a "United States" do you live in?

This is simply nonsense. I can prove your entire website wrong. With the following undeniable facts. 1. Every country has a right to name itself. 2. There's no rule a country can't reuse a continental name. South Africa Isn't actually called "South". 3. The founding fathers (including Washington) along with founding documents called it America and the people have ALWAYS been EXCLUSIVELY American. 4. Americans are the only people on Earth whose Demonym is American. 5. USA ... Read More

Neither is "Estados Unidos" as in "Estados Unidos Mexicanos", yet it's still called Mexico. Should we be calling Mexicans "Estadosians"?

"Neither is "Estados Unidos" as in "Estados Unidos Mexicanos", yet it's still called Mexico. Should we be calling Mexicans "Estadosians"?" Wrong...Estados Unidos is the U.S. Noone in the world calls Mexico "Estados Unidos". Look it up in the U.N., and in the American States Organization. This example is old and does not support your insinuations. On the other hand, Estados Unidos or United States is found in many of those organizations as ... Read More
