Tagged:  •    •  

After my first post on Mexican Spanish Slang I wanted to share this blog I just came across that is devoted to swearing in Mexico City.

It's a compilation of some very slangy curse words that made me laugh and laugh. The author provides mini-dialogues with translations to really give you the idea. Very good stuff.

Some Slang Used In Mexico
I don't know it all, but here are some of the slang words and uses I have picked up in Mexico. Some of them may actually used in other Latin American countries as well.

Güey- Probably the most used slang in Mexico. It is like "dude," and is used ALL the time (pronounced almost like “way”).
Pinche- fucking (adj.)
No manches- No way! Not to be used in formal situations.
No mames- No way! The cussword version. Definitely do not use this in formal situations. literally it basically means don't blow me.
Mamada- blow job
@- used when a word can be male or female, to represent both the “O” and the “A” in the word.
