The rest of "the Americas" calls "the Americas" America.

How often do people refer to the whole Americas? People mostly say North or South America anyways. Oh and the proper term is Americas with an s. killerliquid is right.

Always in latin america, we sometimes subdivide the continent in North, South, Central and Caribbean, but mostly we just call the whole landmass America. I guess both terms are right.

I just check. Both of you are correct and it seems you both also agreed upon that as well. My b.

Yea but nowadays people like to refer to the states as America so for people not to get confused people use the americas when differentiating between the country and the landmass(es)

Still the proper term is America.
User avatar #66 to #63 - killerliquid (11/16/2013) [-]
They're both proper terms

News flash Canada Is not IN America. Canada is located ON the continent of North America. Common usage of the term "American" refers to something from the United States of America.
Find out for yourself: Find someone from Canada, and ask them if they consider themselves "Canadian" or "American".

I'd like to point out it's the United States OF America. Meaning the United States resides on the continent of (north) America. Mexico is a part of America and so is Canada, both are just another part of America (as a continent, not a country). though it is common to refer to Canadians and Mexicans as their own entity. they are, in fact, still American. and when it comes to citizenship of the United States we refer to being "American" as being a citizen of the United States. I assume this is so mostly because it sounds better than United Statesian.

TLR your ignorance of geography is astounding.

Mexico is officially the "United Mexican States" (also referred to as the United States of Mexico). Why the **** don't people bitch about that?
