A lot of the words posted aren't necessarily local to El Paso, they're just words in Spanish.

When I think of El Paso lingo, I think of the "Spanglish" words that a lot of people use (and for which I want to smack them, because, SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, stop mixing your languages):

Washateria: Lavanderia/washing room
Parkear: Park/Estacionar
Quitear: Quit/Renunciar
Mopear: Mop/Trapear

Well, that, and that weird accent some people develop. I've noticed a lot of El Paso people, even the native English-speakers, have a Mexican accent when they talk. I think this is mostly because it was learned from their parents who weren't native speakers and it just keeps being passed down generations.
