    Hi!
    According to this page http://aty.hipatia.net/elgg/leonardo/weblog/1570.html and to this guaraní-spanish diccioneary http://www.uni-mainz.de/cgi-bin/guarani2/diccionario.pl aty is a guaraní word that means meeting, gathering, reunion, community or group

    Hope it helps, but without context it's very difficult...

    Actually, I was wondering if HEW and HEWP might not be English acronyms. They stand for a few different health programs.

    actually they have to be spanish slang text message abbreviations. aty was used at the end of a convo maybe "al rato te yamo" and "hew" or "hewp" maybe a weird way to say "you"?

    what do you think?

    "Al rato te llamo a ti" is the correct spelling, and it means "I'll call you (a ti) later"

    I've no idea about "hew" or "hewp". Sounds more like English than Spanish, maybe if you find an example where you saw it, we can help better.

    Hope it helps!
