The meaning of "Hi" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa Hi, could anyone tell me the meaning of the phrase which highlighted in this passage ?
Thanks !!?
A: okay so this line is talking about the interior decor.
"The luxurious Parisian notes" refer to the parts of the decor that are Parisian (of or from Paris) whether it be vases, paintings, lamps, etc. The second part is a little more ambiguous. "offer themselves to a fiercely feminine interior." basically means that the Parisian parts are paired with the extremely feminine interior. I would understand (from this sentence) that the Parisian parts of the design pair very well with the feminine design.

A: Different people use different words- "Dinner" is usually a meal at the end of the day, and "Supper" is the same thing, but it's more of a snack, a small meal. There isn't a big difference, so you could use either, but "Supper" is normally smaller.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Hello e Hi ?
A: Hi is more informal than Hello.

You can say:
Good day or good evening - formal
Hello - neutral
Hi - slightly informal
Hey - very informal

US English is pretty informal, so we rarely say "good day" or "good evening". You can say "hello" to almost anyone.
You can say "hi" to anyone except someone who is very superior. (I would say "hi" to my boss, but not to the President.)
You can say "hey" to a friend.

("Good morning" and "good evening" are not as formal as "good day" or "good evening".)
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Hi! I'm John! e Hello! I'm John! ?
A: They mean the same thing but the word hi is used more casually, like if you are taking to s friend or family member. Hello is more often used professionally, like when applying for a job, greying a new client, so on. It does not matter which one you use. Either one can be used anytime.

Translations of "Hi"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Hi, what’s up? I hope everything has been fine with you. It’s been hella hot here recently and seems that the rainy season is over, although we haven’t been announced yet. Are you supposed to work from next month?
✳︎please correct my English.🙏
A:

Hi, what's up? I hope everything has been good with you. It's been hella hot here recently. It seems like the rainy season is over, but it hasn't been announced yet. Are you supposed to work next month?

We often say "I'm fine" as a response, but it sounds a little strange to ask if someone else is fine. I think it's because 'fine' usually has a connotation of "I'm actually not doing that well".

The sentence about the weather was a little long, so I split it into two sentences. It sounds more natural that way.

Let me know if you have any specific questions!
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Hi guys 👋🏻

Is there any reason why you put ‘your’ in this sentence (Enjoy your broadway show) instead of saying just broadway show.

I would really appreciate it if you leave comments :)



A: It really just makes the sentence completely. some examples are “enjoy your date~” “enjoy your last week of holidays” I think we say “you’re” because it’s something that you are experiencing first hand. because you are going to the broadway show➡️ its your experience➡️ so it’s YOUR broadway show. :)
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Hi

In what words can I describe two or three hours?

If something will happen in 2~3 hours (나중에 발생(?))use “in a while”

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Hi, guys! I'm reading Oliver Twist and in chapter 10 it says: Carry the thief to Mr. Giles's room!!

My question is: Shouldn't it be Mr. Giles' room? Because the name already ends with s.
A: When adding 's to names that end with S different publications follow different rules. Some say it should be Giles's some say Giles'
There is no universal correct answer. Pick one style and stick with it.

Other questions about "Hi"

Q: Hi Guys, can I say: It was a while( or a lot of time and similar example) that we didn't play football(soccer) toghether. I know the more common expression is probably:" it's been a while since we played football together " but I would use this phrase to emphasize the fact we finally are playing football together. Thank you in advance! soa natural?
A: × Hi Guys, can I say: It was a while( or a lot of time and similar example) that we didn't play football(soccer) toghether.

× I know the more common expression is probably:" it's been a while since we played football together " but I would use this phrase to emphasize the fact we finally are playing football together.
✓ "It had been a while since we'd played football together" is good :)

But that is only used if you're telling someone else about it. If you're talking to the people you're playing with, then the only option is "It's been a while since we've played football together".... However, if you wanted to add emphasis, you could say "It's been *quite* a while". You could also say simply "It's been such a long time"
Q: Hi everyone. Can you help me with this?
I don’t understand the meaning of “blow up the joint” in this sentence:
“They are not necessarily hobos or hippie travelers, nor are they anarchists who are trying to blow up the joint”.
I appreciate in advance🙏🏻
A: "Joint" is slang for a place, especially a business. They don't want to destroy the place with a bomb.
Q: Hi friends, I have a question. How would you say in English:
1.-No quiero ponerte en un aprieto.
2.- No quieto causarte problemas.
3.- no quiero meterte en un lío

Muchas gracias
A: 1. I don’t want to create a predicament for you.
2. I don’t want to cause you problems.
3. I don’t want to get you in a mess.
Q: Hi, it's my pleasure to be here. I'm Yoko. Today, I'll be the interpreter for this meeting, and I'll ensure that we can all communicate clearly and efficiently. I hope that this meeting will be productive.
Thank you." soa natural?
A: × Hi, it's my pleasure to participate in this meeting.
Hi, pleased to meet you.

× I'm Yoko and I'll be the interpreter for this meeting, and I'll ensure that our Ninendo team and all of you can communicate in such a clear manner, and foster a better and mutual understanding of what we're trying to achieve by maximizing the efficacy of this time.
✓ I'm Yoko and I'll be the interpreter for this meeting. I'll ensure that our Nintendo team and all of you can communicate in a clear manner. Hopefully fostering a better and mutual understanding of what we're trying to achieve by making the most of our time.

× I hope this meeting will be the fruitful and constructive one.
✓ I hope this meeting will be productive.

"it's my pleasure to participate in this meeting" very polite but a bit too exaggerated (I'd be thinking, "It's just a work meeting, don't expect too much")

Fruitful, correct meaning &place to use. Just not something native would say, a bit old fashioned and would sound a bit odd.

" to achieve by maximizing the efficacy of this time. " perfect business language! I would make the language a little more natural here.

I tried to make shorter sentences so easier to read and say.

My assumption in giving this feedback is that Westerners might be involved so I've tried to adjust it that way. If thats not the case, you might need more of the formality and politeness in your effort.


great job
Q: Hi !! English Natives!
I'm just wondering how you say when you want to refuse the asking form a cashier at a grocery store or super market in daily life.

when the cashier asks like ' do you need a plastic bag?', and you don't need it, how you can answer in a natural way.

1. No thanks. >>> I thinks it doesn't sound natural.
2. I'm good.
3. it's Ok, that's fine. >> does it make sense?

thank you guys in advance !!

A: No thanks is also totally fine. Number 3 would be something like "Nah it's ok." That would work too.
