A word that has become popular that originated in the NorCal area.

Hella means "very" as in "It's hella hot in here!"

The word has spread, which is ironic because it sounds incredibly hickish (and likely has hick roots, with all of the Okies that moved to NorCal during and after the Depression).

Hella is not a word that people from outside of the Bay Area should be using, unless they actually want to sound like hicks.
Blonde girl: "I'm hella horny. Maybe I should say yes to the first guy that approaches me."

Brunnette: Oh god. You sound hella desperate.
