Synonyms of "Fellow" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between fellow and guys ?
A: Fellow sounds more gentlemanly and British. Guy is more casual and maybe more American.

You can address a group of people as 'Hey guys', but not 'Hey fellows'.
Q: What is the difference between fellow and man and guy ?
A:
'Hey man!' (一人に対して)
'Hey, what's up?'
注意:カジュアル

'Hey guys!' (数人に対して)
'Hey!'
'Hi!'

You don't address people as 'fellow' (Hey fellow 🙅🏾 ) but you can refer to them with 'fellow':
'Who's that?'
'Who?'
'The tall fellow with the moustache over there.'
'Oh, that's Mr Kennedy, Alice's father. Lovely chap.'

'Chap' is another way to refer to a man in British English. 'Fellow', 'Chap', and 'Old Boy' are pretty old though so they aren't used often by young people unless they're pretty upper class.

Q: What is the difference between fellow & coworker and colleague ?
A: A colleague is someone you work with on a professional basis.

A coworker is also someone you work with on a professional basis, but is of the same level as you (so your manager would not be your co worker).

A fellow is just another name for a person who is male (a man/boy).

Another word that means the same thing as colleague is a 'fellow co-worker' which is someone that you work with.

So to summarise, they can all mean the same thing, except for 'fellow' which means a man or a boy.

I hope this helps! 👍🏼

Q: What is the difference between fellow and friend ?
A: yeah! I agree.
example:

or
I was talking talking to this man.
difference between the two sentences is when you use fellow instead of man. you would sound like a polite old person. (no offense) fellow is kind of an old word. people still use it occasionally though.

So I would change it to:
What a guy you are to dislocate your bones just by jumping from the second story!
OR
What a guy you are to just go and dislocate your bones by jumping from the second story!
