Pronunciation[edit]

Pronunciation information for the name Ajijic would be very welcome in this entry. A link to an audio file of a native speaker pronouncing the name would be even better. I note this here because I cannot provide it myself. Ijon (talk) 21:55, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

"In pre-conquest times, Ajijic (Ah-ee-heec) was spelled Axixique or Axixic. The final "c" was pronounced by Spanish rules, but whenever anyone pronounces it, people in these parts know he is a stranger. Ajijic means "The Place Where the Water Springs Forth" in Nahuatl." (June Nay Summers, VILLAGES IN THE SUN, pag.37) 187.140.177.203 (talk) 01:52, 23 May 2011 (UTC) Are you actually saying that the pre-Conquest inhabitants of the area used the Roman alphabet? They had no true writing system of any kind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.233.158.241 (talk) 21:15, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

By a native speaker, I think he means a current, long-term resident of the town or the area, not how it was pronounced when the town was founded or named.Belltower (talk) 22:52, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Wonderful, thank you, Salvador! Ijon (talk) 05:34, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

impossible location[edit]

Ajijic cannot be simultaneously 3 miles from, and a part of, the municipality of Chapala. Which one is it? Kaldari (talk) 08:14, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I believe this should be part of the municipality, but 3 miles from the town. However, if memory serves correct, I am pretty sure Ajijic is actually farther than 3 miles from the town of Chapala... Awjrichards (talk) 17:48, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
I rephrased. It's diferent the town and the municipality. Ajijic is 3 miles from the town but is inside of the municipality that has the same name of the town: Chapala. In es.wikipedia is well distinguished by means of articles: Chapala (town) and Chapala (municipality). An extra reference [1]. Salvador alc (talk) 20:34, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
