  • We could safely say the article “buey” was found in dates back to October 1997. The term must have been included in the dictionary already because it is an essential Mexican slang term, too common to overlook. Thanks for quoting me!

  • I’m sure it’s already in Mexican Spanish slang dictionaries but it so far hasn’t been noticed by the mainstream American slang or even standard dictionaries.

  • I thought your “date of publication” note referred to the source document (in this case, my website). My comment had to do with that and not with the question whether “güey” is or isn’t noticed in mainstream Am. slang.
