The names of money


Although dinero is the regular word for money, it is less used than the more familiar plata (silver). These are the words you are likely to hear in the street:
* plata (money)
* guita (money)
* vento (money, tango slang)
* un mango (a buck)
* un sope (reversed Peso)
* una luca : $ 1,000

In context:
Necesito plata.
Ana tiene mucha guita.
No tengo un mango / un sope.
Gasté dos lucas en una guitarra.
