Hi, stranger!

Posted in Idioms at 11:29 am by Feng

A British friend told me that the phrase “long time no see” is common mainly in US the US (thanks to Saar), but not in UK the UK (thanks to Saar). The British-equivalent British equivalent is “Hi, stranger!”

    “British-equivalent” shouldn’t be hyphenated. It should read “British equivalent.”

    Also, “hi, stranger!” is often used in the U.S.

    Technically, “US” and “UK” should be written “U.S.” and “U.K.” because they are abbreviations, but “US” and “UK” are perfectly acceptable in most situations.

    I agree. It shouldn’t be hyphenated. Thanks.
