Hi! I'm Dutch, my understanding of passive German is good, my active German is deficient, I know some French and am learning Italian, Danish, and have an interest in Russian, Japanese, and most other languages, especially in pointless language trivia.

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”
