Arrow Greetings in more than 800 languages


In addition to the international greetings in many languages on these pages, I also have several other lists of translations in many languages: good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night, how are you?, welcome, goodbye, please, thank you, what is your name?, my name is..., do you speak English?, yes, no, and I don't understand.
If you want more information about a particular language, see my page of Internet Language Resources.
My goal is to include every language of the world on these pages. There are still several thousand languages out there that I don't have yet, so all additions and corrections will be very welcome!

Can you honestly say you sat and read the entire list???? Question

I started to but the novelty soon began to wear off, I find lists of this size in this format don't tend to be read from beginning to end.

If this list is available on the web I think a preamble followed by the link would have been enough. Maybe we might consider this beforeposting any more lists of this size.

Now someone needs to post an equal list of how to say goodbye Wink

The only ones I know (non-English/non-slang) are:
Adios
Ciao
'ma'a s salaama
Au revoir
Auf Wiedersehen
Arrivederci
Adeus
Dazvidanya
Kwahere

Although, some are duplicates of the same language and others (ciao, adios) are used in multiple....

Sorry, but I don't see how this thread can lead to a discussion - people have already started posting lists of words, which is really just spamming. And as reddishblue correctly stated, it seems to have caused some problems with the page layout.

I'll therefore -close- this thread. Sorry to be a killjoy!
