Err pardon the typos.

Robertsays...

Brett: The point is the Name of the country is "The United States OF American...not "The United American States" or any other equivalent...in English along with its "grandfather" languages such as Latin, etc context is everything being that the linguistics of the languages themselves are very contextual...& the Context of saying " The United States OF America" clearly states in the context of the U.S belonging to America it is a part of America though it is NOT America itself.

Brett(United States)says...

Seriously?! There is only one country in all of the American continents with the name America in it. At the same time, no one refers to the continents in the western hemisphere collectively as just America.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

Where did you find the assertion That noone calls the continent America? Please can you explain? Because as far as I remember from Mexico down to the Patagonia Argentina, the continent is known and taught as America.
