Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Mallet, Bayou (Saint Landry Parish and Acadia Parish, La.)

When there are two or more geographic features of the same type with the same name in the same jurisdiction, a distinctive qualifier is formulated by including the name(s) of the next smaller jurisdiction(s) in which the feature is located (cf. H 810 sec. 2.b.(1)). For features in most states of the United States, that usually means including county name(s), but for features in Louisiana, it means including parish name(s). The form of name used in the qualifier needs to match the established heading form of that jurisdiction. This heading was revised from the proposed form of "Mallet, Bayou (St. Landry County and Acadia County, La.)."
