Spanish term or phrase: argentino
I'm sorry for this question which may appear rather silly, but I'd just like some clarification. Los argentinos in English are ArgentinIANS or ArgentinEANS? I would personnaly have always used Argentinian (or Argentine) but MS word doe snot recognise it and is suggesting Argentinean. Is that possibly US spelling, as what I need to use in the translation is US English. Thanks y a mis estimados compañeros argentinos, disculpa mi ignorancia... Gracias

I FOUND THIS POST!

Don\'t you think that\'s being disrespectful to Canadians and Mexicans?
-Do you have any better idea how to call then?

*Wonder how people here would feel if we started to call Argentina and \"Argentinians\" South America and South Americans and only reserved those names for them?
-You have your point, but all the other countries citizen\'s have an especific name (Mexico=mexicans, Canada=canadians, Argentina=\"argentineans\"...)
