Usage notes[edit]

Depending on how one makes the divisions, one may count between 4 and 7 kontinenter on Earth, maybe most often 5 or 6 (Antarctic, Eurasia, Africa, Australia, and finally the Americas as either one or two). Only rarely would Europe and Asia be considered separate kontinenter. In contrast, the word världsdel denotes a cultural or historical division, comparable in size to a kontinent. This division is always done into 7 parts: Antarktis, Sydamerika, Nordamerika, Europa, Asien, Afrika and Oceanien.
