comment Difference between “hay”, “ay” and “ahí”
@Flimzy: As a Mexican I can say that I have the theory that people do not write this correctly because of one of three reasons: lack of education, laziness or, they just do not care about writing it properly. IMHO.

comment How to decide between “ahora” and “ya” for the sense “now”?
As an example of "ahorita" imagine this dialog between a mom and a kid: Mom: Limpia tu cuarto ("Clean up your room"). Kid: Ahorita ("in a minute"). Mom: AHORITA!! ("RIGHT NOW!!"). So "ahorita" can be very confusing for a non-native speaker. You really need to know these subtleties and pay a lot of attention to the context in which it is being said.

comment Ways used to refer to another person?
In Mexico do not use Huevon to call your friends since it is a very rude way of saying the person is really lazy.
