In the Derbyshire dialect, we just say 'Alright'? If someone's dialect is particularly thick, it comes out as 'Yareet?'

My favourite for confusing English learners (or native speakers who aren't from Derbyshire) is 'Yareet, yoth? Aa's tha?'

Bonus points to whoever can decipher this word for word. :)

Haha, I love regional variations. In my area, a common greeting is, to the untrained ear, "O haiya, yorite sun? Owsego'en?".

I'd also like to translate: 'Oh, hi there! Are you alright, son? How's it going?'

Ah, no, the glorious slums of South Wales. Although the accents seem to be pretty evenly split between So Welsh It Sounds A Little Foreign and Is Probably Actually English, so there could easily be some Yorkshire influences in there somewhere haha.

Ha, it makes total sense now if I try to say it in my poor imitation of a Welsh accent. :)

I thought that 'son' was a little out of place for Yorkshire- they prefer 'duck'.

I think "niltze"'s Nahuatl so maybe "niltse"'s a variation, and .. I have no idea about the other one.

In Swedish, we have two: "Hej", and "Hallå". And in Portuguese, it's "Ola". Polish is "Czesc" (with a diacritic on the last c), and the Russian word is "Pryvet" (written in Roman characters).

In the NZ Maori language, there are three versions of hello: Kia ora (a general hello), Tena koe (to say hello to one specific person) and Tena kotou (said to two or more people).
