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.

The number of continents will vary depending on what the student was taught in their country of origin. Students in the U.S. are universally taught that there are seven continents. Students in Europe and Latin America are taught that there are five or six continents. The fact that we are taught differently does not signify that we were taught incorrectly. Here is a link to national geographic which clarifies the issue:

South America is the Southern continental region of America, gringo. Hence the prefix south before AMERICA.

Wrong! America is one continent. As is Asia and Europe 2 separate continents. The geological shape of a continent is irrelevant. Greenland is part of America (in N.America), despite. North & South America are subcontinental regions of America. These are the AmericaS = north AMERICA, central AMERICA, meso AMERICA, south AMERICA, latin AMERICA etc.... These plurality of regions collectively make up what is the continent of AMERICA. AMERICA is NOT the name of your country. It is the name of a ... Read More

There are seven continents in the world. They are North America, South America, Asia, Antarctica, Africa, Europe and Australia. The Western Hemisphere has two continents; not one. Anyone born in the Western Hemisphere can technically be considered an "American." The Americas encompass all the nations of the Western Hemisphere.

You are mistaken. You need to do some reading and research. What I stated is correct. Read my comment again. You did not understand it. You are confused. Good luck with your research.

I understand your U.S. Centric propaganda perfectly. I don't need to do any research, you just need to step off your self entitlement horse. America is the name of the continent, north, central, south [insert prefix here] etc.. are regions of America. As is with all continents.

America = The New World!= The United States.

Slowly but surely the world will finally know and accept the truth that has always been the original truth that "America" is a continent.
