G'day & Cheers 英式英文的用法??

G'day (good day)

想問問是不是僅用在白天打招呼用?? 晚上我似乎真的沒聽過...

Cheers (informal word) 我很常聽到是用在感謝對方(Thank you)...

但我好像聽過有人用 cheers 後感謝對方後...對方也回 cheers

這樣的用法是對的嗎??

還是第二個 cheers 意謂 good bye?

這個情況我在商店交易時見到

Update:

還有個問題

當我感謝對方時

也常會回我 no worry (or no worries)

這樣的用法我也很常聽見

Update 2:

Yeah...you're right.

All senetences are heard in AU.

But how do you know?

I guess above of sentences are also used in UK?

Update 3:

By the way...

I also found cheers means "goodbye"

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=128...

UK INFORMAL used to mean 'goodbye':

"Bye." "Cheers, see you next week."

    im guessing ur from somewhere in australia

    yup g'day is just a way of saying hi, hello, how are you etc

    not commonly used at night though..

    "cheers" means thank you, aussies use "ta" sometimes

    i dont think it would have meaning of "goodbye" in any context, that customer probably was just saying thanks in return as well

    "no worries" = you're welcome, that's ok, you're alright.. etc

    used after someone said thankyou to you or sorry, or even when someone asks you a favour

    cheers means thanks in UK

    cheerio means see you in UK

    cheerio also means a sort of breakfast in

    western countries, such as in UK or US.

    ta means thanks as well.

    John means Toilet in US.

    Loo means Toilet in UK.

    That's all.
