Adios literally means "to God" correct?
In the spanish speaking world people use the word," adios," to say farwell. But the true translation is not, "good bye," but, "to God," correct?
No of corse not, Im spanish and i talk spanish so Adios means just bye bye..... But in latin it comes from adiare = conjugation of adiaris which means later So adios is bye bye not To God lol!
A Dios means to God.
Adiós is goodbye.
Just so we don't get confused....
Here you go...
Adiós From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Adios) Jump to: navigation, search Search Wiktionary Look up adiós in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.
Adiós is Spanish for "goodbye" or "farewell". Literally translated, the word is the contraction of "a" (to) and "Dios" (God), from the old Spanish phrase "A Dios vais" ("You're going to God", meaning to the Kingdom of Heaven), which appears in the novel Don Quixote. It is roughly equivalent to the English phrase "Godspeed" or "Go with God" ("Vaya con Dios"). "Adiós" is also used as a greeting when passing someone on the street, in the same way we would say, "Hasta luego".
Centuries ago, "adios" meant basically "go with God", but nowadays it's just "goodbye" with zero religious connotation.
