Example sentences using "Hey"

Q: Please show me example sentences with “Ruffled and messy”
Hey guys, could we say ruffled hair instead of messy hair? I know ruffled is used for clothes but how about hair? Could you give me some sentence? Thank you!.
A: My instinct is probably no, because "to ruffle someone's hair" is to mess up their hair with your hand, so to me "ruffled hair" sounds like hair that has just been touched by someone. I think that's not quite what you're going for?

We do have another word that's sometimes used for clothes, "tousled," that gets used for hair a lot.

Translations of "Hey"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? ——- Hey guys! hope you’re in the pink! which of these is correct? “ I’ve called you for several times/several times? thanks!
A: I’ve called you several times/ I called you many times
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? ——- Hey guys! hope you’re in the pink! which of these is correct? “ I’ve called you for several times/several times? thanks!

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? ——- Hey guys! I hope you’re doing great! plz consider this: “I would have called you, but I didn't know your number (or) but I hadn’t knew your number” which one sounds natural? thanks!
A: I would’ve called you but I didn’t know your number.

You can also say:

I would’ve called you but I didn’t have your number.
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? —— Hey guys! what’s the difference between “how long were you together” and “how long did you stay together” can I use these sentences interchangeably? many thanks!
A: They are interchangeable, usually. But depending on the situation you might want to choose one or the other.

A: Back then I was still married to my wife.
B: How long did you stay together?
A: Until she died!

(So, it can sound insensitive, if B knew A had lost his wife. "How long were you together" is a safer choice.)

Also, you can't really ask a question like, "How long did you stay together before you had children?" (It sounds like there's a direct connection between staying together and making children.) It should be "How long were you together before you had children?" (or "How long had you been together before you had children?").
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? — Hey guys! as you can see the underlined sentence, is it incorrect as it should be “of a great use”? they didn’t write the article “a” before use, are they correct? thanks!
A: (I think you were asking if the underlined part was correct)
The sentence is still correct and would actually make more sense without the "a" before "great use". This is because they are referring to how it will be helpful or could contribute in a positve way. It doesn't have a specific "great use" but says how it will be good in general. Hope I made sense :)

Q: ある文章で
Hey,isn't the manager cute?
「なぁ、あのマネージャー可愛いよな?」

というのがあったのですが
これって否定疑問文じゃないんですか?

A: あのマネージャーかわいくない?

(かわいいよね?と同意を求めています)

もし、かわいくないよね?なら、

The manager isn't cute, is she?

The manager isn't cute, right?

と、なると思います。
Q: ある文章で
Hey,isn't the manager cute?
「なぁ、あのマネージャー可愛いよな?」

というのがあったのですが
これって否定疑問文じゃないんですか?
可愛くないよな、と確認する形になると思ったんですけどどうなんでしょうか
A: 否定で始まる疑問文は、
肯定の意味を持つものと、そのまま否定の意味を持つものがあります。

日本語でも同じです。
状況によって判断するわけです。

「楽しいんじゃないの?」
楽しいでしょ!
と肯定になります。

「明日渋谷に行きたくない?」
いや、行きたいでしょ
肯定の意味


英語も同じで、言い方によってニュアンスが変わる場合があります。

Aren't you busy tonight?
今夜、忙しいんじゃないの?

否定の「ないの?」ですが、
今夜忙しいんでしょ?っていうニュアンスに感じませんか?
You're busy tonight, right?



質問文も同じで、

あのマネージャー可愛くない?
「ない」がついてますよね。
でも、この言った人は、
可愛いと思って発言していると感じませんか?

あのマネージャー可愛いよね?
と肯定では言っていないのに。


外国人が日本語を勉強するときも、ここは手こずるでしょうね。

あの子可愛くない?

どっちなの?可愛いの?可愛くないの?って具合に。


他にも、
Don't you want to go shopping?
買い物行きたくない?
は誘っているわけで、行きたいよね?
っていう意味で言っています。
行きたくないよね。という否定ではないんです。



Aren't you angry?
怒ってないよね?

これだと、
怒っているのか、怒っていないのか
どっちの意味で相手に聞いているのか分からないですね。
怒ってないことを期待しつつ、もしかしたら怒っているかもしれないと思っている微妙なところです。
