Colombian Spanish is a grouping of the varieties of Spanish spoken in Colombia. The term is of more geographical than linguistic relevance, since the dialects spoken in the various regions of Colombia are quite diverse. The speech of coastal areas tends to exhibit phonological innovations typical of Caribbean Spanish, while highland varieties have been historically more conservative.
The Spanish of Colombia, and especially that of Bogotá, is known for the use of "usted" between friends, family members, and others whose relationship would indicate the use of "tú" or "vos" in most other dialects. In Colombian Spanish, the diminutive forms -ico, -ica (rather than the more conventional -ito, -ita) are often used in words whose stem ends with "t".
Slang speech is frequent in popular culture, especially in the barrios of big cities. In the Paisa region and Medellín, the local slang is named "Parlache". Many slang expressions have spread outside of their original areas to become commonly understood throughout the country.
The Colombian Spanish dialects can be divided in: Paisa, Rolo or Bogotá (also called cachaco), Cundiboyacense, Caribbean (also called costeño), Valluno, Andean, Opita, Santanderean, Eastern plains or Llanero, Chocó or Pacific and Island. -Source: Wikipedia
