    Default Colombian Slang

    Diccionario de Colombiano Actual
    Francisco Celis Albán
    Intermedio Editores, una división de Círculo de Lectores, SA
    Bogotá - 2005
    ISBN: 958-352-6

    195 pages

    The slang is relatively "nacional" but seems to lean toward "expresiones bogotanas". (Medellín has its own argot.) Many terms are given in context.

    I find the book useful and interesting. I bought mine at a "La Nacional" bookstore in Cali. It was the only copy I found although I browsed in stores in Bogota and Medellín. If you have a need for Colombian slang, I hope you can find a copy.

    Hello Thomas, long time no "read"...
    Thanks for sharing. I'm glad you have a copy because if we can't find it, then we have you there...
