hej - hello
hej hej - bye bye
Ok, this one is interesting :D
So is farvel really more like farewell?
Yeah, but you could also say "farvel", or "vi ses", in my opinion, "farvel" and "Vi ses" is more common. "Vi ses" is when you are taking to someone you probably will meet again, like a friend.
I'm surprised! I've watched about 100 hours of Danish TV now and they often use hej hej
Sounds very much like "hi" and "yeah" in English come from Danish.
Thank the viking inventions for that and all places with names ending in -by
Is the word for hello/hi also used for bye/goodbye in all Scandinavian languages? I know in Swedish bye is 'hej da' which literally means hi then
In Finland we often say "hei" and then "hei hei" when we say goodbye. Or "moi" and "moi moi" :)
I wrote "hej hejjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj" and was marked wrong. :(
Why does it sound Japanese to me!?
Japanese for ‘Yes’ is ‘Hai’, which sounds pretty much just like Danish ‘Hej’.
Of course!! :-D Too many animes since my childhood!
Hij for a hello and "double" it , ( hij hij ) to goodbye... this is interesting...
Ummm.. Yeah, Hej-Hej is not Bye-Bye...
But yet, it is.
