Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Ok"

The meaning of "Ok" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does OK without mean?
A: Nothing on its own. You would have to say like “Okay, but without the sparkles” or something, meaning it’s okay, but you have to change something to make it better.
Q: What does I’m OK with this. mean?
A: I'm not against this/ this does not bother me
Q: What does if that's OK with you mean?
A: "I'll borrow your van keys if that's OK with you."
It is a question in the form of a statement
It means "May I borrow your van keys?"

The way I remember it, people kind of stopped saying
"Is that OK with you?" and started saying "Are you OK with that?" in the 1980's maybe? I am not sure. But really you can say either one.

Almost always it is "with" but you can say something like
"I can schedule a 3:00 appointment if that is OK for you."
I think the reason that sounds natural is because it is an appointment "for" you.

In that specific case, however, I think it would be more natural to say "I can schedule a 3:00 appointment if that works for you."

Q: What is the difference between OK and All right ?
A: There is not much of a difference, but I will try to point something out!

"Okay" = "Alright," but many people can perceive that you are more sad, frustrated, or disappointed when saying "alright" rather than "okay." They both mean the same thing, but connotation will differentiate the two.

"I'm okay."

"I'm alright."

Second one sounds more negative, right? If you want to hint to the person that you secretly are dissatisfied, use "alright." Otherwise, I suggest using "okay."

A: Here are a few ways to say it. I've written them informally.

Do you like (whatever)?

-meh its fine
-yeah a bit
-yeah but not a lot

Formally, I might say, "I do like it, but not a lot." Or something to that effect. You can just change the examples I gave above to their proper, grammatically correct versions. If you want me to write them, just let me know.

It's kinda hard to translate it because "like" in English tends to be very broad. It encompasses everything from kind of liking something to really liking it (less than "love" though).
