好的 - 好了 - 好吧 connotations?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

What are the different connotations of 好的 — 好了—  好吧?

 From the usage I've heard, I'm guessing that:
 

好的 — is more like "OK", "yes I agree"

好了 — is more for "OK" when something has happened (example: Didi driver arrived at destination)

好吧 — maybe more like "is that OK?"  Not sure.

好的 generic “okay” or “good”

 

好了 “ready” or “that’s enough” as in, 好了,可以出發了 and 好了,別講了

 

好吧 when not in a question is just “alright, fine I guess” or “okay” depending on your tone of voice

Thanks. I'm guessing that should be 咳嗽?

There's also 好嘞 that your hear waitresses in restaurants saying when you order. I think it's the same as 好了 but with an tone of approval, I.e good choice 

 

Hanzi correct? Not sure

 

Is it country wide usage?
