Hola, ¿Me gustaría saber si éstas frases tienen el mismo grado de énfasis al responder a un gracias y cuál preferirían utilizar en caso de querer ser enfáticos pero que suene natural al mismo tiempo?

you're absolutely welcome
you're most welcome
you're more than welcome

Saludos

    I like the second and third ones the best. They have roughly the same degree of emphasis. The first phrase doesn't sound quite natural to me.

    Thank you very much. Actually, I came up with this example because the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs said: "absolutely welcome" hehe.

    Thank you all

    "you're absolutely welcome" is not incorrect. I just wouldn't say it that way.
