I often use GDL in writing as it's much easier to type. Same with PV, although I never use either of these in conversation. My friend (Mexican) who lives in GDL uses that abbreviation in writing as well, we normally communicate by text messages.

Being a Tapatío, I'll share my point of view regarding the issue:

We do not use Guad instead of Guadalajara. Personally, I do not like it.

Do not use the term "Guanatos", unless you want to sound like a lowlife mexican. It was a slang term for Guadalajara in the 70's popular among marihuanos.

But, hey, this is a free country.


Whatchasayin' bro?

So maybe you should tell the people who run these sites what lowlifes they are?

I saw an extreme example of disrespect on another forum when the poster didn't even bother to put either pv or guad in CAPS.

Axixic, your translation is not good, it changes the meaning of "two hundred years ago" for "for over two hundred years".

"Dogos" is the way hotdogs are called at a place called "Dogos Meños", it does not translates to bulldog. Hotdogs are called...hotdogs.

Tapatiotl was the root word for Tapatío, not "Tapatietl".

I do not care to tell them. If it helps you to learn something go ahead, if not, OK.

I am Tapatío, I am mexican, I know what I am talking about, and I am not interested in arguing about it.

Have a nice day.

Yeah I know nothing about the city in spite of having raised 3 kids in the city. And my wife, who went to the UdG in the 70s, (prepa y universidad), says thank you for the education.

I do not see it as a respect issue, but as ignorance. CAPS or no CAPS.

I wrote it was from Google translate and only made sense if you have a head injury.

He was making a joke.



"That's a joke, son, a flag-waver! You're built too low. The fast ones go over your head. Ya got a hole in your glove. I keep pitchin' 'em and you keep missin''em! Ya gotta keep your eye on the ball! Eye. Ball. Eyeball! I almost had a gag, son--a joke, that is!"

Is Guad considered disrespectful when followed by 'squad'?

Abbreviations for City Names is very common.

As for Guadalajara, GDL seems to be the most popular abbreviation. JA is the new abbreviation for Jalisco, the old one was Jal.

GDL is a good abbreviation for a long name that is often spelled incorrectly.

GDL as an abbreviation can have several meaning depending on what you are talking about of the groups you hang out with.


The spelling checker returns.......

GDL [Godly, Goodly, Goodwill] <font color="blue">[Godly, Goodly, Goodwill] </font> is a good abbreviation for a long name that is often spelled incorrectly
