The meaning of "Hi" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Hi, could anyone tell me the meaning of the phrase which highlighted in this passage ?
Thanks !! mean?
A: okay so this line is talking about the interior decor.
"The luxurious Parisian notes" refer to the parts of the decor that are Parisian (of or from Paris) whether it be vases, paintings, lamps, etc. The second part is a little more ambiguous. "offer themselves to a fiercely feminine interior." basically means that the Parisian parts are paired with the extremely feminine interior. I would understand (from this sentence) that the Parisian parts of the design pair very well with the feminine design.

Q: What is the difference between Hello and Hi ?
A: Hi is more informal than Hello.

You can say:
Good day or good evening - formal
Hello - neutral
Hi - slightly informal
Hey - very informal

US English is pretty informal, so we rarely say "good day" or "good evening". You can say "hello" to almost anyone.
You can say "hi" to anyone except someone who is very superior. (I would say "hi" to my boss, but not to the President.)
You can say "hey" to a friend.

("Good morning" and "good evening" are not as formal as "good day" or "good evening".)
Q: What is the difference between Hi! I'm John! and Hello! I'm John! ?

Translations of "Hi"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Hi, how do I write and read 612.48?

As I remember it should be: six hundred and twelve point forty-eight. Is it correct? In case of digits with 3 numbers, shall I put the "and"? like 340: three hundred and forty or three hundred forty?

thank you so much
A: Credo che sia indifferente. Sia che tu dica "three hundred and forty" o solo "three hundred forty" non fa troppa differenza, si capisce che ciò che vuoi dire è 340. Ma spesso sento che le persone aggiungono quell'"and".
E comunque sì, si legge "six hundred and twelve, point forty-eight"
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Hi guys! I have a question.
Is this sentence correct?

I don’t know that what she likes.

I’m wondering if I can put “that” as a conjunction before “what”.
A: "that" can only be a conjunction before an independent clause (something that could be a sentence by itself).
"I think that we are ok." ⭕
"I think that are ok." ❌

"what she likes" is not a sentence by itself, so it cannot be conjoined with "that"

You can use "that" as a pronoun: "I don't know if that is what she likes."
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Hi does anyone knows what “visceral reality “ means in English?
A: Hahah. This is someone trying to be too clever and it sounds a bit silly (это помпезно).

Visceral is an adjective meaning of the internal organs. It is used to describe an instictive reaction that bypasses the brain. I hear a noise in the dark, I panic. Fear and hatred are often described as non-logical visceral. I have two phobias that are visceral for example. This guy is trying to say that the experiences we have are a mixture of direct and real smells, sounds etc, and digital, which is probably true. Sight is actually a mix, we don't see what we think we see. The author thinks they are being clever because both words start with a v. Actually they sound like a real пизда.
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Hi everyone! I have one question for you all.
"The police (to know) about him for years"
Please, write a correct answer and explain it for me.
Thanks in advance
A: The police HAVE KNOWN about him for years is the correct answer but not the only one. The police are plural so we should use have, although they are also a collective group and "had" works as well. We need to use known because its past participle not simple past. They have possessed this information in the past even if they have lost it now.
You could keep it super simple and say the police knew about him, for years

Other questions about "Hi"

Q: Hi guys! HELP, please. Does it sound correct?

- As of 1st July, my income reduced as I’ve been caring for my child since then.
A: I would say “since the 1st of July my income has been reduced” because you are talking about something that happened in the past but is continuing into the present time. If it was a date in the future that your income will be reducing, then you could say “as of”. For example “as of 1st October my income will be reduced”.
