Orale, buki, no todos los homes speak lo mismo, raza.
Slang definitely varies from place to place. Even in the same city, there are variations of slang. The San Fernando Valley is just north and slightly west of Los Angeles. The Valley is often called "the bedroom of Los Angeles." Several years ago a very funny record was produced based on "Valleyese", the slang used by young people in that area. Same city, different slang. The other day on TV I was watching an American movie when I heard "homes". Do you know what that is? It's someone from your neighborhood. I've heard and used it a lot around Los Angeles, but I don't recall hearing it outside of California. I heard "black ice" for the first time in Oregon. I've only heard it a few times in California. What is it? It's a layer of ice so thin that it's invisible. Believe me, if you drive your car on black ice, you'll know what it is. What's a ""MILF"? The clean definition is "the very attractive mother of a friend". "Random"? "Cool." How about "butterface"? "Shoes"?
