Word USED Very frequently BY Everyone

Argentinians, especially those from Buenos Aires, use "buenas" as a greeting word. It means "hello", but it is shortened from regular greetings like "buen día" (good day) or "buenas tardes" (good afternoon). "Buenas" is used informally, amongst friends or even co-workers with whom you might have a friendly relationship with.

"Buenas, ¿cómo andan?"

"Goods, how's it going?"
