    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.

    Re: "Cool" Quizzes

    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. :( _)
