It’s really striking to see a list of “welcome” in various European languages – the Germanic ones all have some variant of “well + come” and the Romance ones all have some variant of “bien + venu”, which are cognate formations/a calque.
(I mention this because “welcome” is one of those words commonly used in multi-lingual montages, so this sticks out – OTOH, non-European ones seem pretty unrelated; Japanese ようこそ being pretty non-Chinese looking, for instance.)
Other meaning - "no problem", "think nothing of it".
As in, "you are welcome" in response to thanks. No mention of this meaning? I came here looking for a translation of this meaning, and find that it isn't even mentioned. 10:41, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
