My favorite is 'que lo que' and in NY, whenever they are upset, they keep spewing se baina. Then I turn to the news to brush up on my Spanish, and I never hear those words or phrases. thanks for pointing this out, manito!

I will certainly check this site out. I already love the slang style that is already inherent in the Domican form of spanish. After all isn't it true that Spain's spanish is the proper way to speak spanish. Therefore that would suggest that any other form of spanish is a result of slang being added to it...
I can't wait to hear what Domincans deem slang added to their already slang form of spanish sounds like. I bet it is "sexy" as hell...

Jeff,
Languages change, just as much as people do. After centuries, I doubt one country can claim their's is the proper way to speak, in any language. Much the same way the English cannot claim they speak proper English as opposed to the American. All countries add to the richness of their language as others contribute to it.

That info was invaluable. Unfortunately they speak much too fast to even hear it. I really love some of the expressions, but again when trying to decipher the Spanish (when spoken by most) it kinda sounds like BRRRRRRRRLALALA!

horripilante is a correct spanish word and means horrifying. Nitido is a correct word and means clear.
