Hello / Hi(US) / Good morning & Thanks

Good day is to my experience and to that of my dictionary mostly used as a finishing phrase, meaning 'Goodbye'.

Especially if you address someone by his/her first name, 'Hello (Hallo) or Hi is the natural form. Good morning is also possible. 'Good day' (even when used as a greeting) sounds too formal or rigid to me.

Hello !

"God dag" could be translated with "hello"/"hi" (it is formal and informal at the same time), it´s used the whole day long even though there are expressions in Norwegian for
good morning => god morgen
good evening => god kveld

It is written in two words => god dag.

Often it is repeated as well, if you enter a shop you may say "god dag" or "god dag, god dag."

Tak = roof, so I guess there must be one more k => TAKK.

Meaning thank you/thanks in English
"Thank you very much" is expressed with "tusen takk" in Norwegian (meaning a thousand thanks)

I wish you good luck !

Greetings from Tone
