I'll admit it: my Spanish is not that great. Having grown up in So. Cal, I can speak and read the language to a fair extent, but I'm unclear on most of the slang, particularly informal slang for "sister." I know the proper word is Hermana, but I've also heard you can say something along the lines of "como esta, carnala!" as a way of saying like "what up sistah, how's it going?" Any native speakers out there care to help me out? P.S. I know dialects vary by region and country. What I'm looking for specifically is Mexican/Chicano slang like what they would use in the Latino areas of Los Angeles.
