Just to make sure I’m getting this right. That should be: β€œGood afternoon/hello. It is about 4:30 p.m. here,” right?

I saw this and it caught my eye. Found very interesting answers on the internets. (Yes, that was not a typo.)

Here’s the general consensus I have seen (This was the best put explanation I found.) -

β€œThe correct way to write it is β€œγ“γ‚“γ«γ‘γ―β€. But lately even some Japanese people use β€œγ“γ‚“γ«γ‘γ‚β€. It may be used among friends, but it’s not grammatically correct. Just a slang word. Like usage of β€œAnyways” in the US.”

(Same apparently applies to こんばんは)

In case it caught your eye as well!

When explaining β€œgonna” to some students, an English teacher I work with used こんにけわ as a comparison. It’s not a perfect comparison, but basically it shows you wouldn’t use it in formal writing.

Honestly, my post was a typo. I forget that the β€œwa” sound is written as は sometimes. Gets me in the reviews every time. Thanks though!


#12

I figured out was a typo. But the fact that it’s acceptable slang now I thought was interesting to know.


#13

Hello! I am new as well.
