Have you been well (?)
Can we say "Have you been well ?" instead of "How are you?"
If so, What do we reply to it?
Re: Have you been well (?)
Not the usual way to inquire about one's health or well being and, in fact, it has a slight inference that I hadn't been well or that someone might have told the person that I had not been well. A more common inquiry/greeting would be, "How have you been?".
