Is it correct, in order to ask how one's life is, to say "What gives?"
We hear it a lot in AmE, as well as "What´s uo?"
Just a typo. Trust me, I make so many that I'm fluent in them.
If someone said "What gives?" to me, it would sound as though he or she saw something odd, wrong, or otherwise amiss.
It's not the same as "What's up?" for me.
Hey, you haven't answered any of my calls in two days. What gives?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
