OK, we know how to say "hello" in English. I know how to say them in Italian, Arabic and Iranian but I'll only start off with Iranian...
Salam
...Let's see how many languages we can get
BB
Okay, it seems that everybody who wanted to say, said. Could you be so kind to present the whole table of greetings?

that's good that they are not...
i meant (excuse my poor english) that name "Tatu" has its own play upon words.
In russian, "Ta" may mean "those [woman] (subjective case)" and "Tu" may mean "those [woman] (genitive case)". So in russian "TaTu" has dual sense and might be understood also as "This woman <has, makes> those woman". In other words, the name makes the sense "they are lesbian"... brrrr.

So is Irish a different language to english (forgive my ignorance, I wou;dn't know anyway). What does "Aisling" mean...I know it's a name.

Yes Irish is a different language quite similar tho Scot's Gaelic. The majority of Irish people speak English as their first language, with an official estimate of 80,000 native Irish speakers usually in the Gaeltacht areas. Everyone learns Irish in school and signs etc. are usually in Irish as well as English. There is a national Irish-speaking radio station, Radio na Gaeltachta, and tv station, TG4.

Aisling means "dream", but it would usually be spelled aislinn.

Do you live in Alma-Ata/Kazakhstan? And you don't speak russian? Can't believe this... Or this language is already prohibited there?
I am not Russian and moved here recently which explains my pathetic language skills when it comes to Russian. And yes, they are trying to get more Kazakh to be spoken here, though I personally think it isnt working very well. The Kazakhs themselves prefer conversing in Russian...

No problem, but that's my favourite Russian word. Only studied it for two years though in Year's 8 and 9 and can't remember much (although the trip to Russia was fantastic!) My brother's taken it on for GCSE though.
