Question; Is the phrase; "you ok?" used differently in the UK? Here we'd say say it when we have a suspicion someone has something wrong with them, i.e. if someone is crying "are you ok?" (of course it's kind of a retorical question, if they're crying your question is pretty much answered). But on msn by all the people I have on their from the UK they randomly say " are you ok?", which the first time kinda freaked me out cause I thought they had reason to think I was not, so I asked "why?"

Is that more of a standard "how are you doing?" in the UK?

It really depends on how it is said and the facial expressions/body language of the person asking.

you ok? can be concerned or just a standard 'how's it going?' question. depends on the situation.
