____ is the landmass made up of Asia & Europe. The idea that Europe and Asia are separate continents goes back many centuries, but scholars who accept the definition of a continent as "a large landmass surrounded, or nearly surrounded, by water" know that the definition applies to neither Europe nor Asia

The ______ are made up of the continents of North America and South America, including neighboring islands, notably the islands of the Caribbean Sea.

Europeans beginning in the late fifteenth century CE) in contradistinction to the "Old World," that is Afroeurasia.
