While watching Spanish television shows, I have noticed that the younger generation of actors and actresses say to one another, "Simón" and "Neta". What do they mean when they say those words? Are they expressing an agreement or disbelief?

¡Pues encontré la respuesta para el significado de neta! Aquí en: http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=76935, y en http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=145043. Don't you just love Word Reference?! Now, if only I knew the meaning behind "simón". :roll:

I found out that "simón" simply means: sí. Looks like I answered my own questions, eh? :)

Simon is slang for "yeah". Used more amongst friends and family. I have a Mexican friend who told me they use it en casa.

So, more so, "yeah", than the more proper, "yes". Thanks, hypersport! :wink:
