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 British and US Americans have serious lexical problems, but look at the history of the term "soccer", the word America is not the only case

Someone was really this hard pressed to go and pay for a website just because people refer to the US as America.

Most United Statians refer to their country as America. They have serious identity issues, but they are nowadays learning beyond their frontiers.

Setsuko(United States)says...

I'm one of those who don't. I like to refer to my country as Usonia

Mrs. Anonymoussays...

Most citizens of the U.S. have been conditioned to do as the leaders say and do. Sadly, it is no longer a secret as we can see it on the how the media influences people. Taken the name of the continent is not a coincidence but part of their plan. No difference with the name "America". These people play with people's minds and the people take it as is without questioning. America, as all know, is the name given to the new world by Europeans.

Lucas(Chile)says...

I do not understand what is the problem that two that a continent and a country are called the same

Verónicasays...

Muy buen aporte, Fran. Gracias guapo.

Nono(Argentina)says...

You very concerned because the United States also calls itself America, but no one stops calling "Greece" to Hellada, "China" to Zonghuó and "Egypt" to Misr (These are their TRUE names!).

How much hypocrisy!

Anonymous(Canada)says...

Miss Nono Morgan, what happens is that China is not a continent, Egypt is not a continent, and Greece is not a Continent, so no other countries are offended.

Think a bit.

Mrs. Anonymoussays...

good point

Nono(Argentina)says...

The Netherlands did take offense at its extremely misnomer "Holland", and it was not a discussion about the continental.
