Tally-ho

The phrase Tally-ho is a largely British phrase, used in foxhunting, shouted when a rider sees the fox. [ [http://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/tallyho?view=uk "Oxford Dictionary - Tally-ho"] . "Oxford Dictionary". Referenced May 19, 2008.]

Etymology

Tally-ho dates from around 1772 and is probably derived from the French "taïaut", meaning a cry used to excite hounds when hunting deer. [http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/tallyho "Merriam-Webster Dictionary - Tallyho"] . "Merriam-Webster Dictionary". Referenced May 19, 2008.]

Tally-ho is also used as another way of saying "goodbye".

"Tally-ho" is also used in the Northern Indian countryside for provoking and alerting dogs. This is pronounced in India as "leo-ho". Most probably the British Colonists introduced this word to Indian people. Later on it became interchangeable with "choo", with the same meaning as "leo-ho".

In addition to its use in foxhunting, this expression became commonly used during the Second World War by English-speaking fighter pilots to say that an enemy aircraft has been sighted.

This phrase has since been used by civilian pilots in response to traffic advisories provided by air traffic controllers (ATC). The pilot's response "Tally" or "Tally-ho" tells air traffic controllers that the pilot has seen the air traffic in question. For example:

:ATC: "ABC "aircraft identifier", traffic at two o'clock, seven miles, a Boeing 737, west-bound, at 4000 feet.":Pilot: "ABC, Tally-ho."
