means everything is fine.
i agree with the ola kala option for the ok word was born.
In ancient greece, when they load ships with cargo, when tey check the cargo, (always placed in big vases,amphoreis), at the top of each vase, after sealing it they marked it with 2 letters. O K. that means Ola Kala.
everything is fine. so the vase was ready to "travel" in the cargo ship.
Many of those vases where found at greek shipwrecks in the deapths of seas, during ages.
But there are many other options, how the word ok was born, very intresting and worthly to investigate.
1) Affirmation; expression of understanding.
2) Not good and not bad; decent, fine.
3) Alternate way for one to say that he/she likes something that may be considered 'uncool' to like. By saying that it is 'OK', he/she in no way makes a strong commitment to hteir interest, as 'OK' usually comes with connotations of 'better than expected' and 'not good, not bad.'
4) Postal abbreviation for Oklahoma.
1) After being informed of his assignment, the director replied, "OK".
2) It looked like a nasty fall, but Ferdinand emerged OK.
Mike: Do you like that webpage? It seems like a nerdy site.
Tom: Ahh...It's OK.
4) I live in Oklahoma City, OK.
OK is a quintessentially American term that has spread from English to many other languages. Its origin was the subject of scholarly debate for many years until Allen Walker Read showed that OK is based on a joke of sorts. OK is first recorded in 1839 but was probably in circulation before that date. During the 1830s there was a humoristic fashion in Boston newspapers to reduce a phrase to initials and supply an explanation in parentheses. Sometimes the abbreviations were misspelled to add to the humor. OK was used in March 1839 as an abbreviation for all correct, the joke being that neither the O nor the K was correct. Originally spelled with periods, this term outlived most similar abbreviations owing to its use in President Martin Van Buren's 1840 campaign for reelection. Because he was born in Kinderhook, New York, Van Buren was nicknamed Old Kinderhook, and the abbreviation proved eminently suitable for political slogans. That same year, an editorial referring to the receipt of a pin with the slogan O.K. had this comment: “frightful letters... significant of the birth-place of Martin Van Buren, old Kinderhook, as also the rallying word of the Democracy of the late election, ‘all correct’.... Those who wear them should bear in mind that it will require their most strenuous exertions... to make all things O.K.”
"YES YES YES"!!!!
there are two possible ways this word could have come into our modern language; firstly the greek word "olla kalla" meaning all's good. Also in the american civil war "zero killed" (o.k) meaning the battle was succesful.
"Yo sup my nigga, hows it hangin'"
"the battle was ok no men killed"
Said when expressing non-interest during online messaging, in a polite way. Usually said when someone says somethng that you have little interest in hearing about, but dont want to hurt their feelings by saying "shut up" because they'll probably cry.

Actually, not many people know about it, but OK comes from the greek words Ola Kala (ïëá êáëá)which means everything allright!
