Dari: یک جهان سپاس

What is the meaning of یک جهان سپاس?

I heard this on an afgan tv show. Literally it means "one world, thanks", but I have seen it used as a farewell more so than something about one world.

Thank You in advance,

    It means “a world of thanks”, so as you can imagine, lots of or many many thanks.

    There’s no ezâfé/a after جهان but there’s an implicit ‘of’ in its translation into English, equivalent to هزاران سپاس/hezârân sepâs or “thousands of thanks”

    You are right, I avoided these particular examples because very often they (million, ton, bunch) are used sarcastically, but the concept & the meaning is the same.
    Right; the two I provided are colloquial suggestions and can be very sarcastic in nature, but the most likely sarcastic phrase would be "thanks a lot!"
