    I am an Argentine, and have been for the past 73 years. The Country is "La República Argentina" which translates as The Argentine Republic. Note that Argentine is an adjective. Abbreviated, it is "La Argentina". The inhabitans of The Argentine call themselves "argentinos" or "argentinas", NOT argentinianos, argentinios or argentinenses. Therefore, to my mind Argentine is correct, and Argentinian incorrect. Besides Argentinian sound Horrible.

    I agree with Gavin. I have family in Argentina and they say Argentine when speaking in English. Also, Argentinian does sound horrible!!

    I remember being taught that the right option was "Argentinian" and "Argentine" was wrong. That was back in the day, in primary school...

    But yeah, I'd probably say "Argentine" is the right choice here.

    To be accurate, the main stress in "Argentine" is on the first syllable.

    /ˈɑːdʒənˌtaɪn/

    I want to be able to produce that graph for my linguistic QA reports!!! I deal with preferences all the time...

    "Argentine or Argentinian" both of them are correct. Argentine is the most frequent one and the later one is the formal one. As an English speaker, we pronounce it "argen tine"
