moi

Dutch | Drenths & Gronings Noord-Nederland, Netherlands

Word USED Frequently BY friends & acquaintances

(interj.) It's a local variety of 'hi', can also be used as a parting-greeting. I believe it to stem from either 'goedemorgen' (good morning) or 'mooi(e dag)' or something similar (which means beautiful (day)) but this is guesswork on my part.

“Moi, hoe is 't?” Ok, moi hè!

“Hi, how is it?” “Ok, bye”
