    No, because it's "cześć", not "czesc", "dobrý den"(Czech), not "dobry den" and "dobrý deň"(Slovak), not "dobry den" again :p It MAKES a difference.

    Portuguese-Olá

    "Oi" is the correspondent of "Hey".

    And "Hello" in German is "Hallo"; "Guten Tag" is "Good Day".

    No. Habari gani (or sometimes simply habari) is hello in Swahili. Jambo is only and almost exclusively used by tourists, trying to greet natives in a not-so-cool fashion^^

    'ello.

    Did you just say "hello"?

    No, I said 'ello, but that's close enough.

    english: hello!
    espanol (spanish): hola!
    nihongo (japanese): ohayou gozaimasu/ konnichiha/ konbanha/ yo
    guondonwa (cantonese): zho sun/ nae hou

    and i thought in quenya "hello" was something different... or maybe that's just because i'm so new to the language that the only words i know are "horse" "king" "man" "is" "black" "beautiful" and other simple words lol. idk, heared somewhere the proper greeting was "mae govannen" or something. or maybe that's the sindarin dialect.

    "Hello" in modern German is "ey Alta, was geht?"
    "Hello" in bavarian German is "Grüß Gott"
    "Hello" in Northern German (Kiel) is "Moin"
    "Hello" in Passau is "Servus"
    "Hello" in the middle of the BRD is "Tach"
    and I'm not familiar with the languages they speak in the rest of the coutry. Aber lass ma snakken gehn.

    Do I win?
    Silly AA that he thought he could just sum it up in one word...

    Which is okay, never said anything against it. :D
    See, I can't speak a word Portugese (I don't even know how to spell it). The only thing I know is that you DON'T speak spanish and that I'll eventually get killed if I'd assume otherwise.
    Right?

    And those things I listed are really only necessary when you come over for a visit. Noone says Hallo... but they understand it ;)
