Vocabulary explanation

The greeting Assalomu alaykum! is a very common greeting. It is from an Arabic greeting meaning "peace be upon you!" The invariable respond must be Vaalaykum assalom which is also from an Arabic greeting, meaning "I also wish you peace!". But nowadays, most Uzbeks use same Assalomu alaykum also in the respond.

Uzbeks also use different greetings at different times of the day. The most appropriate respond for any of these greetings is to respond the greeting. 

Xayrli tong Good morning
Xayrli kun Good day (Good afternoon)
Xayrli kech (Xayrli oqshom) Good evening
Xayrli tun Good night
Yaxshimisiz? How are you?
Omonmisiz? How are you? (used mostly by women)
Esonmisiz? How are you?

I hope you got something out of this lesson. And I wish you all Happy New Year, 2013!
