'wotcha' is a greeting

origins: ultimately dates back hundreds of years

it's a contraction followed by a phonetic spelling of:

"what chere cheer be with you?", which was a common phrase used as a greeting

chere/cheer meant 'face' and thus referred to a person's expression of their mood
person a: 'hello!'

person b: 'wotcha!'
