There is an interesting article from Barcelona about the Mexican poet Mardionio Carballo who also writes in Nahuatl:
The Northeastern Group of Nahuatl Scholars has finalized the dates for the May 2018 meeting. As in the past two years, we will be increasing the conference to include three days. Please save the following dates: Friday, May 11 (noon) through Sunday, May 13 (noon).
As in past years, the conference will be seeking both documents for translation and scholarly research papers on Nahuatl and all areas of Nahua life and culture.
A formal call for papers with additional details will be forthcoming.

What are the current standards for placing diacritics on Nahuatl and Mayan words? Are there rules in place, and are these rules different in contexts of English or Spanish? I remember that the penultimate syllable of Nahuatl words is commonly stressed, so it would be redundant to place an accent there. But there are other terms in which I sometimes find an accent on the final syllable, sometimes not. Some examples are Teotihuacán, Tenochtitlán, Copán, Chichén Itzá, Uaxactún, Kabáh, and Yaxchilán.
Your comments will help me create a standard to use by Oxford University Press.

Insofar someone does not know this already: the Digital Vatican Library has made the original of the Codex Borgia digital avaible for those who are interested. Beautiful and very sharp images with much more detail then for exemple the Graz facsimile. The direct link is:
Today I saw the Cars 3 movie, and in its end credits was a long list of people who had helped in its production, and one of them was named Tlaloc Alvarez. How common are such Aztec-related personal names in modern Mexico?
