    Iguaza Falls I have personally been there twice. Why is it even listed?

  • Eduardo Enrique Pridmenik


    • Luciana Souza

      Açu means big, Iguá means water (água) like the northern provinces of Aiuaçu Tomé Açu etc.

      • Eduardo Enrique Pridmenik

        “Guazú” means “big”, like in the fox “Aguará Guazú”. I was raised in guaraní zone, so I know well. And “Water” is “I” , or “Y”, like in Paragua-Y, Urugua-Y, I-berá, Wich is a giant aquifer.

          Im both descendant and worked/lived amongst the indigenous tribes of the north. Açú or wa´su both transliterations are acceptable means large, vast, big. I usually means river igara means canoe, Igua is reference to water Some gramatics believe that açu , assu, guassu and guaçu are equivalent words to be applied according to the intonation (remember oxitonas, paroxitonas, proparoxitonas?) however the rules about ç and ss swing from proper grammar to a cultural sense of special designation, (akin to the japanese reasons for katakana despite hiragana covering the same sounds) and yes you would see it with a Z because of being in a guarani zone which mixes more spanish, the tupi (general indigenous language so to say) is mostly from portuguese. Being that the Cataratas do Iguaçu is a Brazilian denomination its more fitting to go with its Portuguese transliteration. Also a guarani zone , if you mean paraguay where guarani is one of the spoken languages, we must remember that the jesuits had a large influence in it, they are original transliterators of the spoken languate into latin letters which , along with regional differences, is sure to evolve as a new language. However as far as my philology and general language knowledge goes, The original word for big is Açu.

  • Roger Cruz

    it’s “Iguaçu”

    where Ç sounds like SS

    Trust me. I live in Curitiba, capital of the state of Paraná

    Is there some sort of journalistic style guide that is directing news writers to write condescending headlines? All I see these days is “things you don’t know” etc etc.

  • Sérgio Fontoura

    “Iguaza” falls?? Geography classes back, please.

    • Eduardo Enrique Pridmenik

      Iguazú, with the accent in the last “u”

  • Luciana Souza

    The name is IGUAÇU (pronounced Iguassu) on brazilian side and Iguazú for the argentineans. Açu is from tupi-guarani means big/large Iguá its water (água in portuguese) . And if you didnt know it existed before 2014 thats because you have never had basic geography class >.> it is considered one of the modern 7 wonders of the world.
