Here are a few of my favorites:
Qué lo qué - Contraction of "qué es lo que hay" (K lo k or KLK in SMS) - What's up?
Ah po' 'tá bien (Ah pues está bien) - Okay; sure.
Un chin - A little; a bit; a small amount.
Un fracatán/Un bojote - (The opposite of "un chin.") A very large amount; a "crapload."
Dar bola - Give (offer) a ride (in a car or on a "pasola" (scooter))
¡Echa pa'llá! - Move over!
Anda el diablo/diache/diañe/diantre - Literally, the devil walks (diache, diañe, and diantre are some of the euphemisms used in the DR to avoid saying "devil.") An expression of surprise, frustration, or concern.
DovalEcha pa'llá is not really specific to the Dominican Republic. But it is a fun expression to use.
