Formal greetings in English

The greeting at issue: €œGood morning, good afternoon, good night€.

Why occasion: as Jim Carrey used to say in €œthe show of Truman€: €œIn case we do not see ourselves then, good morning, good afternoon and good night€.

We did not include €œGood night€ (Good night) because it is only used for goodbyes, and in this case, if you salute at night to somebody, the most adapted that is to say, €œGood evening€.

A trick to turn these phrases into informal greetings is obtained clearing the word €œGood€. For example, €œMorning€ is the informal version of €œGood morning€ and native (British, American and the other English-speakers; them sioux) does not use it on a daily basis. You can use so much with your family as with your friendly; and even at work or the school.

Most appropriate it is to use them in the last hours of the day and with people who you often see. For example, you can tell him €œto How's your day€ to a fellow worker, the doorman of your building or to that amiable baker of the corner that still maintains its open shop for tardones as you.

Possible answers: in order to respond, you can say that one of €œIt's going well€ (€œAll good€).
