"Danke, tschüss!"

Translation:Thanks, bye!

Why my dictionary shows for "bye" "tschüs" - only with one "S"? So what is correct?

Both spellings are correct.

Use tschüs if you pronounce the word with a long vowel; use tschüss if you pronounce the word with a short vowel.

Google uses tschüs also. dict.cc gives only 46 votes to the single s but gives 19479 votes to the double s. I think I trust that version. I'll correct the google one to use s twice.

does anyone have a idea of the derivation of the word tschuss ??

Well it is a friendly way to say goodbye that in past was used only between young people but today is very common in people of all ages. I found this answer on youtube: the channel is "tedescopertutti" see lection "come salutare" (2 or 3 I don't remember); unluckily for you this is a course in Italian but you may have a look. For all I found interesting this: almanii.blogspot.com there you can find a lot of free resources to learn German or to improve it. Sorry for my not perfect English (I'm Italian and I study myself). :-)

It's from a Romance language - related to Spanish adiós.

An earlier form was atschüs.

How to pronounce, this word "Tschuss"?

"chewss". Notice the common German combo sch (pronounced sh).

It's a [y] sound (IPA),. It's not a "oo" or a "ew". If you can pronounce the French "u", it's the same.

IPA: /tʃyːs/.

There's also a soft "t" sound at the beginning. "T'sheuss". The "eu" is not the ü, but it's closer.

Good bye is a naff old fashioned phrase for parting company. "Cheers" is the present day way of saying goodbye - rather dismissive perhaps but at least as popular as "bye"
