** The Japanese seem to use "moshi moshi" exclusively for telephones.

** The Japanese seem to use "moshi moshi" almost exclusively for telephones.telephones. There is at least one instance of it being used in ''Sailor Moon'' by a character speaking to other people who are ignoring her, as if to say "Hi? I'm still here...." Which suggests there are a few other acceptable contexts for its use, but not many.

Fun fact: "Hello" (or "hullo") used to be an expression of surprise or questioning (as in "Hullo, what's this?") until [[NewerThanTheyThink around the turn of the 20th century]] when it became the standard expression for answering the telephone. The modern use and spelling was "invented" by Thomas Edison; the first use of it with modern spelling was as a greeting in a letter from him to Alexander Graham Bell in 1887. [[note]] Hello, or rather "Hallu" from the hunting fields, was also the first recorded word, shouted by Edison to test Bell's prototype.[[/note]] (This would have been the rather nautical "Ahoy-hoy!" if Graham Bell had his way. [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] would approve.) From there it went on to become the catch-all greeting it is today. In French, "Bonjour"[[note]]Formal greeting[[/note]], "Salut"[[note]]Friendly/familiar greeting[[/note]] & "Allo"[[note]]Phone greeting[[/note]]. In Japan, they say "Konnichiwa" or (on the phone) "Moshi moshi" (which has a similar [[NoodleIncident quirky origin story]]). However, lots of countries do include some variant of "Hello" or "Allo" even if only for answering the phone. Interestingly, the German "Hallo" is still also used to express surprise or disbelief, but it's probably more likely in Austria than in Germany. The standard Spanish greeting, "Hola" (which comes from French via Old German, so it shares an origin with the English word "Hello") is also used to express surprise or disbelief (usually with a tinge of exasperation) when formulated as a question ("¿Hola?")
