I haven't seen anyone besides Vladimir and me say this word correctly.
Hello there! Greetings and peace be upon you!
Tell yourself to move on and don't worry about it too much.
When you say "Kak vi pojivayete" in Russian-Slavic, it means "Hello, how are you?"
A Turkish abaza person would really want to hear words from young women (ages 20 to 35) who speak Turkish as their first language.
Russians usually say "drazste" instead of the longer phrase "zdravstvuyte" which is like our "hello". They also say "meeba" instead of "meerba".
If you're in a friendly situation, you can say "Hi" or "Hello". There's no need to be too formal, just say a casual "Hello".
Some Turks refer to it as a kind of fun activity or game.
