AMERICA (_plural_ AMERICAS) * The continents of North and South America, especially when considered to form a single continent; the Americas * 2009, Diarmaid MacCulloch, _A History of Christianity_ (Penguin 2010), page 691: Franciscan attitudes in the Canaries offered possible precedents for what Europe now came to call ‘the New World’, or, through a somewhat tangled chain of circumstances, ‘AMERICA’. * The United States of America. USAGE NOTES Residents of the United States of America may refer to their country as the "United States" (more formal), "America" (common and often patriotic), "the U.S.A."/"the U.S.", or simply "the States" (informal). Residents of Alaska, United States of America's northernmost state, refer to mainland America as "the lower 48" (informal). Residents of the United Kingdom typically refer to the United States of America as "America". Residents of Canada less frequently refer to the United States of America as "America", referring otherwise to "the United States" (more formal), "the U.S." (common), or simply "the States" (informal). Peoples from Latin American countries usually use "America" to mean the whole continent; they rarely use the term "Americas" which is mostly used in the United States. The plural form "the Americas" is common when referring to North and South America together, to avoid ambiguity. Seen as a single continent, it is commonly "the continent of America". QUOTATIONS * 1922, James Joyce, _Ulysses_, II.402: Thou sawest thy AMERICA, thy lifetask, and didst charge to cover like the transpontine bison.

Latin - Etymology

Feminine form of _Americus_, the Latinized form of the forename of Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1454–1512). First recorded in 1507 (together with the related term _Amerigen_) in the _Cosmographiae Introductio_, apparently written by Matthias Ringmann, in reference to South America; first applied to both North and South America by Mercator in 1538. _Amerigen_ means "land of Amerigo" and derives from _Amerigo_ and _gen_, the accusative case of Greek _gē_ "earth". _America_ accorded with the feminine names of Asia, Africa, and Europa. _Amerigo_ is the Italian form of a Germanic personal name. For more, see the Wikipedia article on the etymology of _America_.
