Yes or no?

12 Nov

www.grammar.bz -linkistä löytyy mielenkiintoisesti esitettyjä kielioppiasioita, mutta myös hieman kulttuurieroista – ainakin kielenkäytön suhteen.

So, if you said to an American, “Would you like some coffee?”, and he said, “I’m good,” or “That’s okay,” would you bring him coffee? Was he saying yes or no? Actually, he was saying, “No.” Both of those phrases are common ways of saying, “No, thanks.” You will also hear “No problem” instead of “You’re welcome.”
