    Smile Yellow= Hello You?( American English)

    Hi! I am wondering whether 'yellow' means hello in American English.

    Thanks in advance.

    No - it is American slang or informal combination of the greeting, "Yo!" and "Hello."

    Hi Susiedqq:

    Thank you for your help.

    And is 'yellow' the correct spelling for the slang? Or shall I write 'Yo' and 'Hello' for it?

    I'd write it as Y'ello or Y'Hello.
    There's no point transcribing slang using words that mean something completely different, unless the slang actually uses the word.

    Kon Ni Chi Wa, Fuji Sun!

    I suppose Fuji is your family name.

    Hi, thedaffodils!
    I hope things are going well in your part of the world.

    Well...'fuji' has nothing to do with my name, actually.
    'fuijmino' is the name of a place in Japan.

    I've been learning a lot from your threads.
    I've always been enjoying them. Thank you.

    Sorry, I took it for granted. Glad to know 'fujimino' is a place name.

    You have helped me out many times before, and I bear these in my heart. The most impressive is you found out many examples of 'improve' which should be used in active voice for me. And the other is you always have very big smiles, which is quite cheerful.

    Thank you so much! Have a good one!

    "H'allo" tends not to be used in writing; it is spoken informally.

    I am not even sure of its spelling.

    I have seen "Yo" and, of course, "Hello" in written greetings.
