I'm old enough to be educated in an old soviet school. We there distinguished a so-called 'parts of the world' (as a cultural term) from 'continents' (as a geophysical term).
So there is 'America' as a 'part' but not 'continent' and also a 'New World' contained both Americas and Australia +New Zealand -- this is also a 'part of the World' -- a sociocultural term.
