What does “you as well” mean?

You as well is a short phrase used in conversation to reflect whatever sentiment someone has just expressed to you back at them. It’s commonly used to respond to well wishes:

  • Person A: Have a great weekend!
  • Person B: You as well!

The phrase is made up of the second-person pronoun you and the phrase as well, which means “also” or “too.”

This phrase is synonymous with another phrase, you too. Both are only used conversationally, not in formal writing, because they’re not complete sentences and don’t make sense outside of a conversational context.
