|Assunto:||question: is it correct to answer "Welcome!&a|
You´re welcome/you are welcome is a fixed expression. Whereas "welcome! " is not.
That´s why you got here, but then, many would say that even that is not good form.
Anyway (in the second case - the one brought up by the site link), languages and their theories will always be tricky, the other day I read elsewhere that one shouldn´t use the word "raise'' to mean the upbringing of children.
Then lots, I say lots of writers use that in this sense in novels, books etc.
Not to mention the entries in dictionaries like this one (altough with an aside note):
So, consider this an answer to the reasoning behind what you had that head up, if it got you thinking why is that so.
