Interwiki Semantic Clash[edit]

Entries in other IndoEuropean lang wikis concentrate on theatrical usage of the term. The interwiki links on some of them don't come back to this article because they ignore this, the most frequent, English connotation. Have rectified to the extent appropropriate by adding See Also §. This sort of thing is normal and acceptable in a cross-cultural encyclopedia .Lycurgus 14:59, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Delete Argentina section[edit]

I suggest for the 'Argentina' section to be deleted, since although the word used in Argentine Spanish is "intendente", it is the exact same thing as a mayor, or 'alcalde', as they say in most of Latin America and Spain.

In fact, Spanish-language media outside Argentina tend to use the word 'alcalde' to refer to mayors of Argentinean cities. In the same way, English-language media refer to Argentine cities' heads of government as 'mayors', not 'intendants'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 181.1.0.193 (talk) 08:37, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Not an English Word[edit]

If someone had for once picked up an actual dictionary, they would have realized that intendant is not an English word (unless you mean the historical, i.e. obsolete military/ administrative position). That is the problem with this entry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.225.52.204 (talk) 08:11, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
