Why is the word hello shown when you hover over Adios? Does it ever mean hello?
In English Good-Bye is an elision of Good by ye which is an abreviated form of God abide with ye. Adios is an abreviated form of Vaya con Dios, go with God. ye is pronounced thee.
Hovering over Adiós would display "bye, goodbye, hello." That's really confusing...
I wrote ¡Adios! (with exclamation marks) and it said it was wrong, although just before the program used the exclamation marks.
Why is "Farewell" wrong? [I'm brazillian and I'm doing the spanish course by the english way. A chance to improve my english as well]
Good question. I don't think "farewell" is really wrong. I think I heard adiós used in that way. I guess it has two meanings: goodbye (as in: I'm leaving now but I may be back tomorrow) and farewell (as in: I will die without ever seeing you again).
I almost hear a "th" sound when this word is pronounced (instead of how it's read, with a "d"). Am I hearing the word wrong?
