What is 'afternoon' in French?
That's incredible the amount of errors everywhere: Bon aprĂ¨s-midi is NOT the translation of Good afternoon, Bon aprĂ¨s-midi means good bye and we use it when we leave a p…erson. Good aftzernoon is BONJOUR in French!!! "Bon aprĂÂ¨s-midi" is one equivalent of "Good afternoon." Specifically, thepronunciation is "boh-nah-preh-mee-dee." the masculine adjective "bon" means "good." The masculine noun "aprĂÂ¨s-midi" means "afternoon." "Bon soir" is another equivalent. Specifically, this greeting is used later in the day, during the late afternoon to early evening hours. The pronunciation is "bohn swahr." The masculine noun "soir" means "evening."
"Bon aprĂ¨s-midi" Grammar note: This can also be written "bonne aprĂ¨s-midi". This is because the word aprĂ¨s-midi has the rare quality in the French language that it can eq…ually be used as either masculine or feminine; both are common and correct. It doesn't usually matter for speech since the pronunciation remains the same for "bon aprĂ¨s-midi"/"bonne aprĂ¨s-midi", "cet aprĂ¨s-midi"/"cette aprĂ¨s-midi", etc. (I don't know how this ambiguity over such a common word came to be, but if I had to guess, I would say it might have something to do with the masculine/feminine pairs of the parts of the day such as matin/matinĂŠe, jour/journĂŠe, nuit/nuitĂŠe, etc. and "aprĂ¨s-midi-tĂŠe" would be just too bizarre, so people started simply using the word itself in the feminine. However if there was ever a distinction in meaning between the masculine and feminine forms of aprĂ¨s-midi, that has disappeared.)
Good afternoon is translated "bon aprĂ¨s-midi" in French. Bonjour is the correct way, bon aprĂ¨s-midi means good bye in French
passez une bonne aprĂ¨s-midi
afternoon starts at 12:00 noon or 1:00pm.
about 3:30pm - 4:00pm
12:00 midday till the evening begins. Generally, evening is considered to begin when the sun's gone down and it's beginning to get dark, but generally it could be pinned down …to after office hours - around five pm. When it's fully dark, or almost so, night begins. Night might be considered to begin around the time people have their evening meal. Night ends, by the clock, at midnight. Morning runs from then until midday, but many people consider night to be the time between the evening meal and the time they wake next day, and morning to start at waking-up time.
