Diccionario comentado del español actual en Colombia
He aquí, en 2000 palabras y expresiones, el vocabulario típico del Castellano que se habla en Colombia, al iniciarse el siglo xxi. Esta compilación muestra y demuestra que existe un espacio lingüístico común fijado por el uso, un "Español Colombiano" que ha venido a superar los léxicos regionales, predominantes hasta mediados del siglo anterior. Necesario y oportuno registro del lenguaje característico de la moderna nación. Es un diccionario no convencional, que supera la aridez del tema con un estilo coloquial y fino humor. Trae abundantes ejemplos de uso, tomados del lenguaje cotidiano. Las Claves Temáticas, con que se inicia, agrupan los modismos típicos en doce sub-temas, reveladores de la riqueza y matices del habla nacional. Es un libro que se lee con agrado, se consulta fácil y se colecciona con interés. La segunda parte de la obra recoge EL PARLACHE, JERGA DE MARGINADOS, con el vocabulario de las pandillas juveniles de Medellín y de otras ciudades. Se presenta como un diccionario separado, para dar cabida a una realidad de interés sociológico y lingüístico.

Diccionario de antioqueñismos
Este libro refleja bien la personalidad de un intelectual que se preocupa por lo propio, que escarba en sus raíces y a la vez vuela a su antojo en los ámbitos de una cultura más amplia.

Este volumen se defiende a sí mismo con decoro y no desluce para nada respecto a sus predecesores, que, aunque no se restringe a la región, destila en buena parte de sus voces el sabor de los ríos, las montañas y los sudores de la gente de acá.

Los regionalismos suelen considerarse palabras de baja categoría, adulteradoras del buen decir, contrabando de términos inaceptables, pero son la mejor muestra de la lengua viva y la demostración léxica de que son diversos en medio del mismo mundo idiomático.
