    If you asked the locals here, they'd probably say the third was either W.C. or bye

    "Bye" seems a likely candidate. It does match "hello" very well (altho it doesn't ring a bell).

    I found when I visited the south of Spain, a few years ago that some of the popluation didn't know what OK meant. I only spent a few weeks there so I can't speak for the whole population.

    I've heard "bye" used in several non-speaking countries. And also the word "Ciao", or "Chau" in Spanish is also popular in a number of countries I've visited.

    This quiz is for all of you real grammar nuts. You will need to decide, after reading each sentence, whether the sentences are simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex. Good luck! By the way, this quiz is based on U.S. English Usage
    .

    Go to: http://www.funtrivia.com/quizdetails...05&origin=4568

    I would like to know what the teachers think about this one. (I didn't do as well as I would have liked. :( _)
