    The word is ‘Hello’

    Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. But Thomas Alva Edison coined the greeting ‘Hello’, and Google’s Hello Android.

    Also, early telephone operators were called “Hello Girls,” a term that appears in Mark Twain’s “Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”(1889).
