"There you go" is well established in Australia. My late grandparents on holiday from England were highly amused when a waitress delivered each plate of food with the greeting "There you go". They said that it sounded like a nanny addressing three-year olds."Here you go" and "There you go" sound AmE to me.
I (BrE speaker) say "Here you are" and "There you are."
I would like respectfully to ask you an inquiry here, which is as follows: Are these two expressions(Here you go or There you go)AE? Because I know the similar of them in BE is "here you are" and "help yourself".Yes you can. Sounds somewhat BrE to me, but it's interchangeable with "here you go."
I don't think that would be correct. Of course, this type of expression is very personal and so there are no rules attached, just common usage.Hello
Can we use "here you are" in a situation like the following conversation or is it only used when handing over something to someone?
A:May I ask you something?
B:Here you are
Why it doesn't?!Hi, Echo7.
I don't think it fits the situation given. What do you think it would mean in that context?
Here you are/go and there you are/go are for transferring something from "here" (me) to "there" (you). But when you extend an invitation or give permission, nothing is being transferred.Why it doesn't?!
A asks if she/he could ask some questions perhaps and then B wants to invite A (or give him/her the permission)to speak by saying here you are, ask what you want ...
I don't know if I made myself clear, but I hope so
