English term or phrase: hello & goodbye

Explanation:
This is the easiest way to say both "hello" and "goodbye" in Greek. The "g" is not a hard "g"; it's more pronounced like the "y" in "yes". And the "i" is barely audible. So, really, "ya soo". Accent the first word more than the second, and there you have it.
