comment Is the dropped /s/ in Argentina a class marker?
I don't think this is a class marker and I disagree with the selected answer. Even in advertisements along the highways you see the words dropping "e". Do you argue then the advertisements tend to stereotype and make fun of teens/lower class people? I'd say this is just one of the language characteristics of Argentinian Spanish. Similar phenomena also occurs in Chile and a Chilean would definitely not say this is a sign of "stereotyping". This is just what identifies you as a person belonging to that region no matter your social class.

I don't think this is a correct answer at all. Even in advertisements along the highways you see the words dropping "e".

comment Why is the 'b' and 'v' pronunciation inconsistent?
Curious about where do you hear them pronounced as an English "v"? That's just simply incorrect as standard Spanish.
