Good thread -- I don't know if some slang words can be mentioned here. But to really understand real conversations and communications -- you have to know the slangs including the less than polite words because I hear them a lot.

The "ch" word -- with just about every suffix -- ese ch___adero, vamos a ch___azos, ese ch___on -- one can say pretty much anything they're trying to say it sometimes seems.

It's like anything -- it all depends on how it's said -- but in order to understand another language -- you have to know all the kinds of words. Which are not necessarily bad slang, which may or may not be -- and which always are bad.

I've found a rule of thumb -- Americans should avoid use of slang. It's not always possible to know all the implications -- but they should learn the meanings.

These are from Oaxaca... learning slowly :P

-estar crudo (to be hung over)/ Estoy crudo/cruda
-chela- beer
-Orale! - cool
-Hijole!- oh my gosh!
-Pinche as in Pinche gringo (where you hear it the most :P)- similar to the f word
-desmadre- snafu
-all the forms of chingar (chinga tu madre, chingada, etc)- different forms of the f word
-llenita- normally means chubby but also my host mom uses it as full (as in of food)
-antojitos- finger foody snacks like tacos
-aguacate- avocado (I was always taught that avocado is the same word in English and Spanish and in some parts of Mexico, it is. Just not in Oaxaca)

Now for funny:

Several bad Spanish words here in the USA are quite 'clean':

There is a 'Pinch'; a small town in West Virginia........and the present tense would be 'pinches'---------as in the stream pinches down to go through the hole in the wall.

An important man of an Arizona college is named Christopher Pu to.

Then there is 'Naco', Az.-----------a small town on the Az/Sn border.
