Yeah we do. It's very informal. We also use yep, when we want to be informal and enthusiastic.
In Australia, where the phrase has become entrenched in the past six years, “yeah no” can mean anything from “yes, I see that, but can we go back to the earlier topic” to an enthusiastic “yes, I can't reinforce that point enough”.
The most common verbal greeting is a simple “Hey”, “Hello”, or “Hi”. Some people may use Australian slang and say “G'day” or “G'day mate”. However, this is less common in cities. Many Australians greet by saying “Hey, how are you?”.
In Britain one kiss is generally enough. The usual formal greeting is a 'How do you do?' and a firm handshake, but with a lighter touch between men and women.
A handshake is the most common greeting, and should be firm yet not too strong. When greeting each other, close friends may hug or kiss one another on the cheek, while others may simply offer a nod. In some casual settings, your name may be announced to the group at large.
It is considered very rude to push ahead in a line. Do not shout or be loud in public places and don't use excessive, demonstrative hand gestures when speaking. Staring is considered impolite. Do not be too casual, especially with the English language.
'Dear' is the only real addition to the standard 'darling' that most couples will need, with perhaps a 'love' and a standard 'darling' thrown in here and there. Come the 60-year anniversary, many British couples are content with a few grunts over the breakfast tea and toast.
It is considered impolite to ask a direct question about a person's salary or wealth. Inquiring about someone's weight or age is also highly inappropriate in many situations. Spitting in public is rude. If there is a line for something, always queue and wait for your turn.
Hooroo = Goodbye
The Australian slang for goodbye is Hooroo and sometimes they even Cheerio like British people.
Bore da (bore-eh-dah) - Good Morning. Nos Da - Good Night. Diolch (dee-olch) ("ch" pronounced like gargling water) - Thank you.
Thanks / Many thanks / Thanks so much
You're likely to hear the shortened version “thanks” more than you hear people say “thank you”. It's often combined with something else, like “many thanks” or “thanks so much”, although if you hear someone say “thanks a lot” they are usually being sarcastic.
Mate (noun) So, 'mate' is British slang for a friend.
British terms of endearment: 'Sweetheart', 'love', 'darling'…
The verb snog is British slang for kiss, cuddle, or make out. It's a word that is more and more common in American English as well, as a casual way to talk about kissing. It can be painful for kids to watch their parents snog, and many of them don't want to see people snog in movies either.
Bloody. Don't worry, it's not a violent word… it has nothing to do with “blood”.”Bloody” is a common word to give more emphasis to the sentence, mostly used as an exclamation of surprise. Something may be “bloody marvellous” or “bloody awful“. Having said that, British people do sometimes use it when expressing anger…
You often hear Americans say that they are “pissed”, meaning that they are angry or annoyed. British people also use the phrase “pissed off”, which means the same thing.
