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.

Eustaciosays...

America is a continent. The United States is in America. Guatemala is in America. Paraguay is in America. So the word "America" of course exists in English.

Facts Are Factssays...

And, as we all know, ‘America’ most often refers to the USA in English.

Andysays...

David, sorry Morgan?

Morgansays...

You’re a genius.

Morgansays...

You can always recognize me as the one who supplies facts. You are always recognized by your lies, bias, ignorance, simple-mindedness, pettiness, and BS. Good job. You’re doing it!!!

The Teachersays...

Really HU??

How are the United Statians doing in the Olympics this time?

MMsays...

Not bad

Jota(Argentina)says...

En inglés no hay nada que se llame solo América, hay un continente llamado "South America", otro continente llamado "North America" y un país llamado "United States of America", este último ALGUNAS VECES los estadounidenses lo suelen acortar como "America".

Andysays...

North America is not a continent, South America is not a continent as neither East Europe, North Africa nor South Asia are continents. America being in North America doesn't make sense.

USA is NOT America(Canada)says...

Lol Andy! The only statement that I agree with you on from that comment is “America being in North America doesn't make sense.”!

North America and South America are 2 continents. I don’t even care who thinks/says there are 7 continents, 6 continents, 5 continents or 4 continents.

Those who say America is a single continent are not wrong. Those who say America is 2 continents (that being North America and South America) are not wrong either. Only those who say “America is a single country and refers to USA only” are absolutely the ignorant and the only people who are wrong.

East Europe, North Africa and South Asia will never be continents but may be viewed as regions of Europe, Africa and Asia!

North and South America can be viewed as 2 continents and together they form their singular name America! They can also be viewed as a single continent and together they still form their singular name America!!!

Andysays...

America is a continent not two, if North Africa and South Asia aren't continents North America and South America are neither.

Jota(Argentina)says...

On this website itself, the name "US American" is suggested for the nationality of someone from The United States of America, but for that, a new abbreviation of their full name should also be proposed: "US America"

Andysays...

They should drop the "of America" part already or transdorm it to United States of Middle North America.

USA is NOT America(Canada)says...

Lol Andy!

Renaming the country as …

United States of Middle North America …

is a more dumber/stupider name than United States of America.

They should instead transdorm or change their current name to United States of Usonia!

I can do fun logic with “United States of Middle North America” if I have to!

Belisariosays...

whatever... United States

Andysays...

It is a more logical name. USA is literally in the middle of North America.

Andysays...

Do you fun logic: I will wait.

Andy or Andrea(Namibia)says...

We did it!!! Now Change.org is going to give more promotion to the petition.

Carlos(Costa Rica)says...

Resulta increíble pensar que David Morgan ni siquiera esperaba que 20 votaran. He is now opening his eyes!!!

He should admit he was "very" wrong.

:)

Michael E.says...

David is the typical United Statian. He would rather be dishonest than admit that he has lost.

509 signatures WOW, so it wasn't 3 cats as he suggested

Mark(United States)says...

It is wrong to call United Statians as Gringos or Americans.

Sophiasays...

it's also wrong to call us Yankees

The Greatest Hitssays...

Cubans and Spaniards don’t commonly refer to Americans as ‘americanos’.
