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.

This website is meant to correct American people from Nothing wrong.

There is clearly no rule in English that says that ALL words in a country’s name must be capitalized. Definite articles, prepositions, and conjunctions are very often NOT capitalized.

It is the same in French.

And Spanish.

This perfectly describes the opinions of Dave and Craig. They are in no way based on facts or knowledge. Your teachers would be mortified if they read your posts.

Davidsays...

Your educations were a complete waste of taxpayer money and/or your parents’ money. What utter embarrassments you are.
