J˝unda (J˝uunda, J˝unnda, Jnunda)
"J˝unda" is an alternate spelling of Đomndaa,
which is the indigenous name for the Mexican Indian language Amuzgo. Amuzgo "j" is pronounced like English "h,"
not like the j in jar. "J˝unda" and "Đomndaa" are really the same word in two different Amuzgo dialects,
meaning "water language."
