I've heard a few people complain that the USA is shortened to just 'America' but in English if you want to talk about all the continent or continents you could say North America or South America or the Americas for all of it.
Yep, I believe we should say USA not america and united statesian not american.
I do understand you Martin. However, what you are claiming is something of a
The common convention is that "American" refers to citizens of the United States of American.
You can disagree with and oppose the convention to your heart's content, to little avail.

Peruvians,Brasilians, Chileans, Canadians, citizens of the United Sates of America, we are all Americans.
You know what , I have a similar interesting story whcih I want to share with you . I recalled I learned one thing in my textbook during my high school . I quote it "Columbus discovered the continent , America" . I felt very strange as this continent is supposed to be existent for millions of years , far more than the history of human beings . Why should Columbus discover the continent ? Besides, at the most , the aboriginal people should be the first discovery instead of foreign people . There is anything like your notion . American is not equivalent to the citizen of USA , however, when other people told me he is an american , I know where he is from. Many terms have been mistaken , but most people get used to that .
Indians are not people living in India all the time , is it right ?
@Allen Cristobal Colon was not discover America, he was invaded America.
Martin the wikipedia link you gave says 'Americas' not 'America'. I mean perhaps you can complain that English is not like your language with might assign America as the continent but that's not how it works in English.
