comment What are informal ways to say “good bye”?
@balpha English is similar, particularly (and ironically) if punctuated with an honorific, e.g., “Good morning, sir.” There are of course exceptions. A radio personality named Paul Harvey ended all his broadcasts with a quaint, friendly-sounding “Good day!”

comment How can a native English speaker know when it is appropriate to use the polite (Sie) or the familiar (Du)?
When using the first case, how does the inquirer indicate that he intends third-personal plural rather than second-person singular, or is the avoidance maneuver a matter of the inquirer's comfort—as in ‘I meant they but can't help how the other person takes it’?

comment Why is “Fräulein” considered offensive, as opposed to “Frau”?
Do Frauchen and Herrchen imply anything about the age of the owner, or is this another use of the diminutive that indicates closeness, as in Samuel's answer?
