I haven't edited the Mojavé page, but I did a little research; the only sites that came up on the fist page of a Google of "Mojavé" were Memory Alpha, your website, and some foreign-language websites. I contacted the Mojave Chamber of Commerce and the Kern County Board of Supervisors; both confirmed that "Mojave" is the correct spelling. It's not a Spanish word, per se; since the name is derived from the Mohave Indian tribe, the accent on the "e" is inappropriate; it is inconsistent with the accepted pronunciation (moe-HAA-vee,) anyway. Were it spelled "Mojavé," it would be pronounced "moe-ha-VAY." I don't remember how Pike pronounced it, but I used to live there, and only tourists said "moe-ha-VAY." 14:12, 5 Apr 2005 (EDT)

As you've since seen, I edited the instances in the body in the article, only after you changed the title. Didn't want to step on any toes. 17:34, 6 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Fix't -- still have to fix links however -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
