Neither Wishing you a happy weekend nor Wish you a happy weekend would be used in normal conversation. As others have noted, spoken parting platitudes at the end of a week are normally started with have, such as:

  • Have a good weekend
  • Have a nice weekend
  • etc.

Change the adjective to be what you think most appropriate for the situation.

On the other hand, if you are signing off some correspondence, such as an email, then Wishing you a happy weekend is more appropriate.

Similar constructions include

  • Wishing you a happy birthday
  • Wishing you a merry Christmas
  • Wishing you well

To use *Wish you a happy weekend you need to add I to make the sentence grammatical. i.e.

I wish you a happy weekend.

A notable exception to this is the common postcard sign off Wish you were here where it is idiomatic to leave out the I.

Hello, I woke up today with a positive energy and happy for no reason. I wish that I can make you feel the same or at least make you smile for a while. Have a.

wish you a nice day

Hello.
I think I know the meaning of "have a nice day."

Yet, I don't know the sentence structure.

Is this command, grammatically?
OR
It is an abbreviation sentence of;
"I wish you have a nice day"
or
"I wish you will have a nice day"?
I can't explain why it's correct but know it is!

I guess when you say "have a nice day", you are hoping/wishing that the person does.
I wish you have a nice day-incorrect
I wish you will have a nice day - incorrect

I would say: I hope you have a nice day. But people simply say "Have a nice/good day" Hope it helps a bit

Thank you for your comment.

I would like to know why you think "I wish you have a nice day-incorrect" and you would say "I hope you have a nice day."
Is there difference between hope and wish?

And about "command sentence", I would like to know whether "Please have a nice day" will work or not.

Thanks in advance.

The first and foremost reason is that native English speakers would never say it this way.

Secondly, "wish" and "hope" are not exact synonyms and each has nuances and "wish" can in some contexts contain an element of doubt and/oir hopelessness.
Hi.
In Japanese forum, I sometimes read this kind of question, which is about the sentence's grammatical structure of Japanese daily greeting idioms.
It is asked by non-native Japanese speaker, and I sometimes think it is rediculous.
BUT I found myself doing the same thing now.
When we learn another language, we tend to try analysing all sentence structure. I think it is some kind of curiosity.
The sentence "have a nice day" is imperative: that is, it is a command. Even if one adds "please", it is still imperative.
Thank you, GreenWhiteBlue.
I got it.
I wonder if it is imperative or not, so your answer is exactly what I'm looking for.
Thanks.

Thank you, sdgraham.
I understand.
I've learned from you the difference of the two words.

So I should have named myself as "hopefull" rather than "wishfull".

Thank you, all.
Have a nice day.

Initially, I thought that these would all involve the use of the imperative:

  • Have a nice day.
  • Have a good trip.
  • Have a pleasant evening.

Now I wonder whether it might not be more convincing to think of them as involving the subjunctive. Compare this with the attested subjunctive in 'God bless you' (meaning: May God bless you). 'Have a nice day' means 'May you have a nice day'.

Additionally, 'Please have a nice day' sounds very strange to me, whereas 'You have a nice day' is possible, I think.

Hi.
Thank you for your comment.

I think there are two interpretations in this kind of sentences; Subjunctive or Imperative.
My method to distinguish them was to add "please".
If it is still make sense after adding "please", the sentence must be imperative.
If not, it must be subjunctive.

According to your comment, you judged that "Have a nice day" is imperative for the first time, but "Please have a nice day" doesn't make sense. You thought it might be subjunctive.

So I want to know which is your conclusion.
And I would like to know that my method to distingish them is correct or not.

On balance, I prefer the subjunctive interpretation. And yes, 'please' does not work with the subjunctive.
The sentence "have a nice day" is imperative: that is, it is a command. Even if one adds "please", it is still imperative.
I agree. It is a command.

I always say, "Have a day". It seems presumptuous to command someone to have a particular type of day. They may have other ideas on the subject.

"I wish you a Merry Christmas", has another structure. It means that you have made a wish on behalf of the subject. It is not a command.

How to say have a nice day in french

wish you a nice day

Greetings are used every day and are a very useful thing to learn when starting a foreign language. Even if you can’t speak somebody else’s language, you can at least show your politeness by learning some simple greetings. As well as learning ‘hello’, ‘nice to meet you’, and ‘goodbye’ in Korean; you may want to know how to say ‘have a nice day’ in Korean.

We’ve included a FREE PDF version of this lesson that you can take with you on the go. Check it out below:

We’ve got you covered! We’ll explain the ins and outs of the phrase so you can put it to good use. Let’s get started!

‘Have a Nice Day’ in Korean

The phrase ‘have a nice day’ is not used that often in Korea, especially compared to how frequently it is used in other countries. Often another greeting such as 잘 가세요 (jal gaseyo), which literally means ‘go well’, is used instead. In other cases, just saying ‘goodbye’ is sufficient as the Korean word for ‘goodbye’ implies that you wish somebody a good day.

If you want to specifically wish somebody a good day then you can use the phrases in this article. However, in most situations, a simple ‘goodbye’ will suffice.

There are three expressions that you can use to say ‘have a good day’ in Korean. Two of them use the word 하루 (haru), which in this expression can be translated as ‘day’. However, be careful using this word in other situations as its literal meaning is ‘one day’. If you want to say ‘two days’ then saying ‘이틀’ would make absolutely no sense at all.

Two of the phrases use the word 좋은 (joeun), which means ‘good’. It comes from the descriptive adjective 좋다. Sometimes this word may be replaced by 즐거운 (jeulgeoun), which means ‘pleasant’ or ‘enjoyable’.

The phrase 잘 보내다 (jal bonaeda) can be used when saying ‘have a good day’ in Korean. It can also be used in order to say things like ‘have a good weekend’, or ‘have a good vacation’, as shown in this article’s examples.

Formal ‘Have a Nice Day’ in Korean

1. 좋은 하루 되십시오 (joeun haru doesipsio)

 

2. 좋은 하루 보내십시오 (joeun haru bonaesipsio)

3. 잘 보내십시오 (jal bonaesipsio)

Formal Korean is often used in presentations, interviews, or other situations where you are talking to a group of unknown people. Some of these phrases sound a bit unnatural in such group situations as you usually would normally wish an individual a good day.

Standard ‘Have a Nice Day’ in Korean

1. 좋은 하루 되세요 (joeun haru doeseyo)

2. 좋은 하루 보내세요 (joeun haru bonaeseyo)

3. 잘 보내세요 (jal bonaeseyo)

Standard Korean can be used with people who are older than you or who you are not that close with. Note that when you say the phrase ‘Have a nice day’, you are asking somebody to do something, and therefore should include 세 in order to be polite. If you just say 보내요 (bonaeyo), then it is possible for some people to think that you are not being polite enough.

Example:

주말 잘 보내세요 (jumal jal bonaeseyo)

Have a good weekend.

해변에서 좋은 하루 보내세요 (haebyeoneseo joeun haru bonaeseyo)

Have a good day at the beach.

Informal ‘Have a Nice Day’ in Korean

1. 좋은 하루 보내 (joeun haru bonae)

2. 잘 보내 (jal bonae)

You can only use informal language with people who you are close to, and who are of a similar age or are younger than you. You might say this to a close friend, sibling, or classmate.

Example:

휴가 잘 보내 (hyuga jal bonae)

Have a good vacation.

잘 가 자기, 오늘 하루도 잘 보내 (jalga jagi, oneul harudo jal bonae)

Bye darling, have a nice day.

A Word of Caution About Romanizing Korean

Romanization may at first appear useful, but in fact you will improve your Korean at a much faster rate if you take the time to learn to read the Korean alphabet. Learning the alphabet, known as ‘Hangeul’ can help you improve your pronunciation and identify different parts of words more easily. The Korean alphabet is very easy to learn, and you can master it in just a few hours. If you want to take your Korean study up a notch, why not try our full Korean course?

 

Now that you know how to say ‘have a nice day’ in Korean, use your ability to greet people and make some new Korean friends.
