    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!!
