English term or phrase:Jamaica
I want to know how "Jamaica" is spelled in Spanish.
Explanation: Christina: The first answer you got was how to "pronounce" it, not how to spell it. The most commonly used "gentilicio" in South America is "jamaiquino" and in Spain it's "jamaicano", although the Real Academia Española only accepts the former ("jamaiquino").
