5 of 10 Don’t confuse the term “regionalism” with “regions” article 1 of 5 Don’t misunderstand the term regionalism.
It refers to the geographic region within which a country lives.
For example, in the United States, cities such as Los Angeles and New York are considered to be regions, while in Brazil, cities in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and other cities are not considered regions.
When discussing the relationship between regions and the U.S. and Brazil, you may want to use the term Latin American or Caribbean region instead of South American or Pacific region.
If you are looking for an example of regional differences in a country such as Brazil, look no further than the fact that the city of Rio de Paulo is considered an American city, while the city in Sário do Sul is considered a city in Brazil.
When you hear the word “region,” it is most likely to be used when talking about the country’s geographic borders.
But it’s important to realize that a country’s borders aren’t always geographical.
For instance, a country could be considered an island in the South Atlantic Ocean or a region in the Pacific Ocean.
So don’t confuse regionalism with “the border between countries.”
