definition of the word ciao

by the Wiktionnary

Italian

ciao!

  1. hello, hi (especially US), howdy (US).
  2. bye, goodbye.

In UK and in US usage, ciao is considered pretentious by some.


From Italian schiavo ((your obedient) servant) from Medieval Latin sclavus (slave); in the Venetian dialect originally pronounced /stʃaʊ/. Slavs were often enslaved during the early Middle Ages, thus the semantic correspondence. Development and use is similar to the Central European greeting of servus.

ciao!

  1. Hello!
  2. Goodbye!
