HELLO

Americans don't just use "hello" to answer the phone.

They use it multiple times during the day and with different meanings.

"Hello" can be used as an exclamation to get someone's attention(Hello! i'm taking to you!).

Or to express surprise (Hello! What do you think you're doing?).

"Hello"can also call into question someone's common sense.

For example, "You're really going to spend 5000 on a purse? Hello?

While everyone around the world does not say " Hello" when they are answer the phone, many greetings are similar.

The French say, "Allo," Germans say "Hallo" and Indonesians say ,"Halo."

But in some countries, the telephone greeting is quite different.

In Italy, people say "Pronto" or "ready" when they answer the phone.

In Tamil, a language in southern India, people say "Sollunga," which roughly means "tell me."

Chinese people say "Wei".

"Hello" did catch on as a telephone greeting.

But the same early phone book etiquette section also promoted "That's all" as the way to end a conversation.

It didn't catch on. That's all.
