Hello "bonjuorno" could be the dialect version of "buongiorno" that in Italian means "Good morning". "Juorno" is the written neapolitan version of "giorno".

  • Good Morning!

  • Dear Lika, I found a very interesting article on line searching for the "Etimologia" of the word Buongiorno. The article is in Italian and is very long, I will send everybody the link. Buongiorno (Or Buon giorno) is coming from the XIV 'secolo' and is compound by Buon e Giorno. As an 'interiezione' it is like a good morning, but if it is a name is used when you meet someone or leave someone. We have to avoid the similarity with Buona Giornata which is only used when a person is going away.

  • It looks like a beautiful blend of French 'bonjour' and Italian 'buongiorno'. Buongiorno means 'good morning', it is a formal greeting when you approach someone.

  • Hi Ilka! It means Good day! or bouna Giornata as respectful phrase.

    Buon giorno or Buongiorno, means good morning

  • Hi ilka, many people already explain you the meaning of bonjourno, Hear I'm teaching Arabic and Italian for forigners, I'm egyptian but I live in Italy from 40 years, IF YOU NEAD HELP CONTACT ME.

  • It's not bonjourno but buongiorno, and that means buon= good and giorno= day, together you can translate in good day. Did you know the meaning of "ciao"? It's coming from 4 century ago from Venice, the people say ""sciao" , means "slave" in Italian slang from Venice, and was a form of respect when you meet somebody to say that, like "I'm at your service" shorted.

  • It’s a polite way to say ‘ciao’, means hi also good day or good morning 😃

    The word is spelled BUON GIORNO, sometimes written as a whole word other times in two separate words, like I've written it. Literally it means GOOD DAY. Some people - especially in the North of the Italy - use this greeting only in the morning, others - mainly in the South of Italy - use the greeting during the day until early evening, when it is replaced by BUONA SERA.

  • That’s good morning, you can use it till 4pm after this hour only buonasera can be used. Let’s pay attention in writing whit the correct word G not J
