Learn how to say Good Morning in Spanish.
There are many ways to greet someone a good morning, in Spanish you will also encounter lots of different ways to do so. The basic good morning in Spanish will be “Buenos Días.”
The basic “good morning”
Tell someone a standard greeting in Spanish such as “Buenos Días.” It is a way of saying “good morning” and the phrase will literally translates into “good days.” The phrase is compounded by the plural form of the words “día” (day) and “Buenos” (good). For this phrase the word “Buenos” is used in the masculine form and the word “días” is used on its plural form. The phrase will be pronounced as: boo eh nos dee ahs. The saying will not depend on how familiar you are to the person you direct to.
Another way to address to someone can be “Buen Día” and will be only used in specific context. This is a very colloquial statement that is used in several Latin American countries. This phrase will be only expressed to family and friends and some other casual events. It is used in the early morning and it is pronounced as: boo en deeah.
There is a greeting that is derived from the phrase “Buenos días,” pronounced as: boo ehh nahss, but it will not strictly direct towards the morning. Simply say “buenas” to greet someone you just encountered, and it will be used at any time of the day, including the morning.
If the individual is young or some respectful person you might want to add to the greetings above some of these titles: “señor,” señora,” or “señorita.” For example, say “Buenos días” followed by that person’s strictly title. The first will mean “sir” and can be used with any man pronounced as: sehnhyor. The second one means “ma’am” and will be used with married women pronounced as: sehnhyora. The last one will mean “miss” and used with unmarried woman pronounced as: senhyoreetah.
Address to a group
If you want to address to a group of individuals you might want to use the phrase “muy Buenos días a todos” pronounced as: mooeee boohenos deeahs ahh tohdohhs. You can use this phrase to address the entire group. “muy” means “very” and “a todos” means “to all.”
UP UP UP!
The rough equivalent of the English phrase “rise and shine” will be “arriba!” This will literally means “up” and it will only be used to tell someone who is asleep to wake up. You may greet a child or a loved one with this phrase. Pronounce this phrase as: ahhrree bah.
Morning is here!
Declare “ya amaneció.” Just another greeting used to raise someone out off from their beds when they are still asleep. The word “Ya” means “already.”
The word “Amaneció” is the past progressive form and also comes from the word “amanecer,” meaning “to dawn.” This is translated literally into “it has already dawned.” It states that whoever is still in bed should wake up due to the morning is.
Pronounce the phrase as: jah ah-mah nay ceeoh, remembering to emphasize the “O.”
How have you awaken
For a polite way of asking how the individual’s morning is going you can ask “cómo amaneció usted?”
“cómo” is the question word “how” and the word “amaneció” means “to dawn.” Literally this will mean “how have you dawned?” and will be pronounced as: koh mohh ahma nay ceeooh ostehd.
