|What is "adiós"?||
‘Adiós’ is the Spanish word for ‘good-bye’. See also ‘chau‘.
The French equivalents are au revoir (good-bye), and adieu which is more final and closer to ‘farewell’ in meaning. The Italian words are arrivederci (good-bye), ciao (a more casual ‘bye’), and addio which is similar to adieu in meaning. Spanish does not have an equivalent word to ‘adieu’ and ‘addio’. You use ‘adiós’ for both ‘good-bye’, and ‘farewell’.
