G’day, mate!

 

“G’day” is the contraction of “Good day”. It’s just another way of saying “hello” or “hi” and mostly used in Australia and New Zealand. Also used in the constructions “G′day, mate” (a greeting to a friend or acquaintance) and “G′day, stranger” (ironically, to a friend not seen in some time).
