"Hello, beautiful! After you!" and "Hi, beautiful! Don't mention it!" are English equivalents of the Italian phrase Ciao, bella! Prego! Context makes clear whether the greeting, feminine singular adjective/pronoun, and interjection refer to a speaker allowing a listener to go first through a door (case 1) or responding courteously to being previously thanked by the listener (example 2). Regardless of meaning, the pronunciation will be "tchow BEL-la PREY-go" in Italian.
